The Empire of Alabastapunk is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Emperor with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.372 billion Alabastapunkians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alabasta. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Alabastapunkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,280 trillion Sexteeroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 173,730 Sexteeroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and Alabastapunkian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about The Emperor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alabastapunk's national animal is the Nazgul, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Alabastapunk is ranked 265,824th in the world and 444th in Refugia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -30.08 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
