The Technocracy of The Clockwork Republic is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Clockwork Android Prototype with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.108 billion Clockwork Republicians 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cogwheel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Clockwork Republician economy, worth a remarkable 4,333 trillion Cogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 330,571 Cogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, they who do not work shall not eat, and saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Clockwork Republic's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Clockwork Republic is ranked 223,132nd in the world and 7,514th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.27 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
