Location: The North Pacific



Population11.045 billion



The Empire of Cloydicia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 11.045 billion Cloydicians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squibble. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cloydician economy, worth a remarkable 1,367 trillion Yangs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 123,805 Yangs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 207,208th in the world and 9,349th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -130.32 on the Hayek Index.
