The Royal Kingdom of Alkoul is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Andrew with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 9.088 billion Alkoulians 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although Commerce and the Environment are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

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, and its currency is the Crown.

Alkoul is ranked 91st in The Commonwealth of Crowns and 101,795th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -13 on the Hayek Index.
