The Technocracy of The Clockwork Republic is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Clockwork Android Prototype with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.675 billion Clockwork Republicians 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cogwheel. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Clockwork Republician economy, worth a remarkable 2,916 trillion Cogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 301,436 Cogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, the The Clockwork Republic Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Clockwork Republic's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Clockwork Republic is ranked 94,593rd in the world and 3,806th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 894.75 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
