The United States of Almaniania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Viola Castillon with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.078 billion Almanianians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galt City. The average income tax rate is 31.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Almanianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,483 trillion panas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 147,172 panas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, President Viola Castillon's mistress is the belle at many state balls, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime is totally unknown. Almaniania's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
