CapitalAlaninia City


The Empire of Alaninia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.189 billion Alaninians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alaninia City. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Alaninian economy, worth 95.1 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 quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 80,013 Als, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, fat-shaming is now public policy, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. 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 16,607th in the world and 543rd in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,460.39 Tourists Per Hour.
