The Free Land of Cleromancy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Edytha with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 17.585 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Norman City. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cleromancyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,252 trillion Muffins a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Gambling, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,089 Muffins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The monarchy has adopted absolute primogeniture, nose plugs are the latest Cleromancyian fashion accessory, a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Edytha, and Edytha claims tax rises are the result of 'curses'. 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 5,483rd in the world and 2nd in Spoiled Cats for Fattest Citizens, with 22.37 Obesity Rate.
