The Barony of The Empire of the Clarence
“We Will Endure”

Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Barony of The Empire of the Clarence is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Bruce with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, fear of technology, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.057 billion Clarenceans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mcfarlane. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Empire of the Clarencean economy, worth 137 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 66,609 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
A new "thought police" branch is being developed, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and priests are being drafted by the church load. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Empire of the Clarence's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
