Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Retired Delegate of Alsted is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a federal presidency with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.449 billion Alstedians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Alsteden. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.5%.

The strong Alstedian economy, worth 801 trillion Alstedian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 48,750 Alstedian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Alsted to be bombproof, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, planespotters are emigrating in droves, and corporate lobbying has been outlawed. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alsted's national animal is the Snowy Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alsted is ranked 428th in Europe and 111,953rd in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -205 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
