The Queen's State of Almagordo is a colossal, economically powerful nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.428 billion, 6.391 billion of whom are zombies, Almagordoans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18%. A substantial private sector is led by the Retail industry, followed by Gambling and Basket Weaving.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, education and welfare spending are on the rise, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is moderate. Almagordo's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the betale.
Almagordo is currently considering its options.
