The Empire of Cloydicia

Regional Influence: Page

Location: The North Pacific



Population10.635 billion



The Empire of Cloydicia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 10.635 billion Cloydicians 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squibble. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cloydician economy, worth a remarkable 1,349 trillion Yangs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 126,876 Yangs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the well-to-do in The North Pacific are never on time for important appointments, and asking a cutie their star sign is always met with withering scorn. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cloydicia's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cloydicia is ranked 197,570th in the world and 9,265th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.39 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
