“We Will Endure”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Barony of The Empire of the Clarence is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.469 billion Empire of the Clarenceans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 44.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Empire of the Clarencean economy, worth 87.2 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 59,341 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, the secret service is working overtime to find anyone publishing unauthorized material about Leader, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million guilder battlesuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Empire of the Clarence's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
