The Imperial Federation of Aldina is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Sophia with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and frequent executions. The compassionate, humorless population of 11.057 billion Imperials are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,523 trillion libers a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,754 libers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aldina's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aldina is ranked 75,901st in the world and 3,068th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 156,232 Standard Monetary Units.
