Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Royal Kingdom of Alkoul is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Andrew with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 13.13 billion Alkoulians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Alkoulian economy, worth a remarkable 1,173 trillion Crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,349 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alkoul's national animal is the Hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alkoul is ranked 93,116th in the world and 78th in Esquarium for Most Conservative, scoring 42.62 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
