The Dominion of Claritia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.232 billion Claritians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Claritian economy, worth a remarkable 3,428 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 198,944 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping. Crime is totally unknown. Claritia's national animal is the mountain goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nominal Christianity.

Claritia is ranked 149,065th in the world and 5,646th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 28.89 on the Rand Index.
