Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democratic Republic of Clumm is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 969 million Clummians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clummingrad. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Clummian economy, worth 73.2 trillion Clams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 75,560 Clams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government employees from Clumm dominate international lumberjack competitions, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, and popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the Clummingrad River. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clumm's national animal is the Clam, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
