The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, digital currency, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.449 billion Clarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. 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 4,356 trillion banner yoyoes 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 dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 164,718 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Clarians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. 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 86,571st in the world and 535th in Europe for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 727.77 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
