Cleric Beast

Population972 million


The Republic of Cleric Beast is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 972 million 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 relatively small, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.5%.

The very strong Cleric Beastian economy, worth 47.4 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 48,742 francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 184,229 per year while the poor average 8,972, 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.

Cleric Beast is ranked 157,010th in the world and 669th in Artificial Solar System for Highest Poor Incomes, with 8,900.98 Standard Monetary Units.
