The The best spelller land of Alantic empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sir Raleigh with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.081 billion Alantic empireans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swamp City. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alantic empirean economy, worth 478 trillion elephant coins 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 229,763 elephant coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit, biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and most people learn to drive on crash courses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alantic empire's national animal is the Swamp elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Alantic empire is ranked 103,193rd in the world and 2,973rd in the Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,630.44 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
