Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Scientific Protectorate of Alcubierre is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Tau with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.771 billion Alcubierreans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government prioritizes Defense, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eureka. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Alcubierrean economy, worth 348 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 44,910 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Alcubierre's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, pregnancy is being used by teenage girls as a quick way to making pocket money, Secular Humanism has been named as Alcubierre's national religion, and Lord Tau has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alcubierre's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular Humanism.

Alcubierre is ranked 17,829th in the world and 48th in Wintreath for Best Weather, with 154 Meters Of Sunlight.
