The Empire of Claboran is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Microbro with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.572 billion Claboranians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kemon. The average income tax rate is 87.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Claboranian economy, worth a remarkable 1,399 trillion Mikes a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 306,136 Mikes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Air Claboran is rumored to receive more government funding than the Claboranian Air Force, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, Claboranian tourists are banned from many nations due to their tendency to randomly explode, and the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Claboran's national animal is the Laughing gull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Microbroism.

Claboran is ranked 19,213th in the world and 1st in The Tribe for Most Cultured, scoring 85 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
