The People's Republic of Alangrad is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Alan with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.523 billion Alangradians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alantropolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alangradian economy, worth a remarkable 3,383 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 a breathtaking 518,656 ostmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, Alangrad isn't what it used to be, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn. 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 2,822nd in the world and 5th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 21,743.81 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
