Cleric Beast

Population2.341 billion


The Republic of Cleric Beast is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, cynical population of 2.341 billion 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 medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The very strong Cleric Beastian economy, worth 117 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 50,124 francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 189,453 per year while the poor average 9,226, 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 170,096th in the world and 1,711th in Artificial Solar System for Most Average, scoring 25.13 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
