The People's Republic of Alversia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Sammi Owens with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.86 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 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 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Alversian economy, worth a remarkable 1,933 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 114,684 Sedars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, and the government pours millions of Sedars into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime is totally unknown. Alversia's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
