The Inhospitable Ski Slopes of Agalaesia is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.917 billion Agalaesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deiliannis. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Agalaesian economy, worth 487 trillion Agalaors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,629 Agalaors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agalaesia's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Elfism.

Agalaesia is ranked 254,170th in the world and 7,846th in the Rejected Realms for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
