The Holy Republic of Alaas is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Commander Shepard with an even hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its hard-nosed population of 5.973 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elixia. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Alaas is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and Alaas's educational system is the envy of many and regarded as a pinnacle of academic achievement. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alaas's national animal is the Puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Luna.
