The Nomadic Peoples of The Cleve is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mike Polk Jr with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.679 billion The Cleavers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindoria. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Clevean economy, worth a remarkable 2,030 trillion Shiny Pebbles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 190,120 Shiny Pebbles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

TC-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, the police double as repo men, and government adverts say that twelve lashes a day keeps divine wrath at bay. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Cleve's national animal is the Zebra Mussel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Cleve is ranked 180,766th in the world and 6,844th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -76.44 on the Rand Index.
