The Imperial Federation of Aldina is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Sophia with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.091 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 86.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth a remarkable 1,534 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 138,345 libers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people". 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 214,221st in the world and 6,978th in Lazarus for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
