The People's Republic of Alangrad is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Alan with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.603 billion Alangradians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alantropolis. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Alangradian economy, worth a remarkable 2,773 trillion ostmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 494,956 ostmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, mouldy bread is served as an appetizer in many restaurants, the government is a law unto itself, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Alangrad's national animal is the Moose, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Marxism-Alanism.

Alangrad is ranked 207,602nd in the world and 961st in The Communist Bloc for Safest, scoring 4.26 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
