Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Retired Delegate of Alsted is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by a federal presidency with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 15.313 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Alsteden. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Alstedian economy, worth 569 trillion Alstedian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,209 Alstedian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, medical lawsuits are out of control, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Alsted to be bombproof. Crime is totally unknown, 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 190th in Europe and 100,382nd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -112 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
