The Republic of Aldund is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Garfield Wessex with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 20.998 billion Aldundians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eriel. The average income tax rate is 59.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aldundian economy, worth a remarkable 2,360 trillion Reis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,416 Reis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aldund's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aldund is ranked 77,611th in the world and 31st in New Western Empire for Most Primitive, scoring 12.68 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
