The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.658 billion Clarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but inefficient Clarian economy, worth a remarkable 4,628 trillion banner yoyoes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 167,347 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pregnant women get a lot of evil glares from fellow passengers when leaving the country, dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. An Clar's national animal is the magpie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Melkorianism.

An Clar is ranked 4,077th in the world and 14th in Europe for Most Stationary, with 2,339.66516928 Days.
