“Hail Thee Balder”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
The Ancient Lands of Alvalero is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zander with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.77 billion Alvalerans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankara. The average income tax rate is 83%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
There is now a private sector based on doomsday devices (Alvalero has found 2 easter eggs), voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, skateparks can be found in every city, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alvalero's national animal is the White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Norse Mythology, and its currency is the Alvaleran Dollar.
