The Grand Lodge of Aleister is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Volkhv Eldridge with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 8.061 billion Aleistaris are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pont Aven. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The thriving Aleistari economy, worth 629 trillion ⚵ Jades a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 78,061 ⚵ Jades, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 359,334 per year while the poor average 10,270, a ratio of 35.0 to 1.

Visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, the comic book series 'Volkhv Eldridge and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aleister's national animal is the Hoatzin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Order of Naamah.

Aleister is ranked 102,469th in the world and 1st in Sinope for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,308.17 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
