Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Retired Delegate of Alsted is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a federal presidency with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 16.245 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 66.5%.

The strong Alstedian economy, worth 795 trillion Alstedian Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 48,971 Alstedian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Medical lawsuits are out of control, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Alsted to be bombproof, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. 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 452nd in Europe and 110,283rd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -2 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
