The Observer States of Alaska and California is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The First Speaker with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.058 billion Alaskans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 The State of Union. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Californian economy, worth 236 trillion Californian Dollars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 114,832 Californian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, Alaska and California's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alaska and California's national animal is the Alaskan Ice Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Alaska and California is ranked 6,270th in the world and 383rd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,891.08 Tourists Per Hour.
