The Empire of Alaninia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.649 billion Alaninians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alaninia City. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alaninian economy, worth 353 trillion Als 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 76,119 Als, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Alaninia City for fear of causing a fuss, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, and cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alaninia's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alaninia is ranked 233,372nd in the world and 9,040th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.68 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
