The Technocracy of The Clockwork Republic is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Clockwork Android Prototype with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.379 billion Clockwork Republicians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. 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 5,279 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. Average income is an amazing 343,309 Cogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Clockwork Republic is ranked 140th in the world and 6th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,519.79 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
