The People's Republic of Alversia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sammi Owens with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.127 billion Alversians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illesia City. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Alversian economy, worth a remarkable 2,039 trillion Sedars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,495 Sedars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime is totally unknown. Alversia's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
Alversia is ranked 56th in The Local Cluster and 20,753rd in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 164 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
