The United Republic of Alahana is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Gerrit II with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.839 billion Alahanese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alahan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Alahanese economy, worth a remarkable 1,310 trillion Prasars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 94,692 Prasars, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alahana's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alahana is ranked 150,384th in the world and 6,253rd in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.93 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
