The Free Land of Cleromancy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Edytha with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.939 billion Cleromancers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norman City. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cleromancyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,036 trillion Muffins a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Gambling, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,760 Muffins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cleromancy's national animal is the Platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Jainism.

Cleromancy is ranked 4,809th in the world and 2nd in Spoiled Cats for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 13,626.1 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
