The Greater Empire of Alchbyre is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Erevis Kanir with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.492 billion Alchbyreans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moster°y. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alchbyrean economy, worth 343 trillion crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 137,665 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alchbyre's national animal is the White-throated dipper, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Heathenry.

Alchbyre is ranked 7,914th in the world and 5th in The Dimensional Rift for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 19.25 Bank.
