The Empire of the Clarence

Population3.066 billion



The Barony of The Empire of the Clarence is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bruce with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.066 billion Clarenceans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mcfarlane. The average income tax rate is 54.5%.

The strong Empire of the Clarencean economy, worth 230 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 75,207 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the The Empire of the Clarence Blood Tithe, families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Empire of the Clarence is ranked 195,865th in the world and 9,578th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 68.17 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
