The Popsicle Pete Nation of Clench is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.042 billion follower of Josephs 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Joseph City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Josephic economy, worth an astonishing 34,330 trillion monies a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 1,038,982 monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,278,675 per year while the poor average 251,561, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

Angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires, the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy, and the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Clench's national animal is the viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Josephism.

Clench is ranked 37,428th in the world and 924th in the Rejected Realms for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 13.03 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
