The Holy Empire of Alasdair I Frosticus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Basileus with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.081 billion Imperials hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Social Policy is also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 3.8%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Alasdair I Frosticusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,140 trillion nomismas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Tourism. Average income is 68,873 nomismas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Alasdair I Frosticus's national animal is the double-headed eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Alasdair I Frosticus is ranked 2,610th in the world and 1st in The Dreamed Realm for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 162.68 on the Hayek Index.
