The People's Republic of Alversia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sammi Owens with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.124 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illesia City. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
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, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alversia's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Sedar.
