“Worship the Banner or be destroyed!”
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
The Holy Empire of An Clar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaius Melkor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.671 billion Clarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. 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 4,676 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 mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 163,114 banner yoyoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government popup ads are springing up like weeds, Gaius Melkor has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, the police insist that racism does not exist, and An Clar's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. 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.
