Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: The Vatican City
The Uberness of Alderin is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.107 billion are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 49%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Adultery has been made a capital offence, the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, and foreigners are treated with great suspicion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alderin's national animal is the fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the lira.
