The Populgoverne of Alcantaria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.723 billion Alqantarianes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cive du Alqantarie. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Alqantariana economy, worth a remarkable 1,998 trillion Qantares a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,485 Qantares, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, high school bands practice by moonlight, and saying 'Hi Guys' to a mixed gender group of people at work is a fireable offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alcantaria's national animal is the Ocele, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alcantaria is ranked 3,763rd in the world and 53rd in Forest for Healthiest Citizens, with 22.25 bananas ingested per day.
