The Queendom of Alqania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Alexia III with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 6.56 billion Alqanians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wilborg. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Alqanian economy, worth 135 trillion crowns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 20,606 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The wreckages of bombed planes that litter Alqania are highly popular tourist destinations, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways. Crime is totally unknown. Alqania's national animal is the panther, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
