The Confederate States of Claraxia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr Towns with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 35.553 billion Claraxians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Claraxian economy, worth a remarkable 9,784 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 275,207 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Passengers often cause a stink on public transport, athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, Claraxia isn't what it used to be, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime is totally unknown. Claraxia's national animal is the timber wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Cult of Shimajiro.

Claraxia is ranked 206,167th in the world and 7,615th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -28.57 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
