The Republic of Cleric Beast is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 2.211 billion Cleric Beastians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.
The very strong Cleric Beastian economy, worth 110 trillion francs a year, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 50,124 francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 189,453 per year while the poor average 9,226, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.
Crime is a problem. Cleric Beast's national animal is the dolphin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.
