The Time Telling Clocks of Time Clock is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Time Clock with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, daily referendums, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.262 billion Clocks are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Time Town. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Time Clockian economy, worth 122 trillion Times a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,830 Times, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Serial killers are the country's biggest import, the latest guided missile cruiser "Ship-1642" has received precisely zero column inches in the press, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Time Clock's national animal is the Humans and its national religion is Time Reading.

Time Clock is ranked 32,256th in the world and 1st in Time Clock for Most Developed, scoring 74.06 on the Human Development Index.
