Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The East Pacific



Population761 million



The Democratic Republic of Clumm is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 761 million Clummians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Clummingrad. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Clummian economy, worth 56.4 trillion Clams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 74,091 Clams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of Clams are being poured into a space program, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, and government employees from Clumm dominate international lumberjack competitions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Clumm's national animal is the Clam, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Clumm is ranked 7,174th in the world and 199th in The East Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 147.93 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
