The Production State of Aleister is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Renari with an iron fist, and remarkable for its lack of airports, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.577 billion Aleis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telkopo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The thriving Alein economy, worth 286 trillion Shills a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 80,039 Shills, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 325,180 per year while the poor average 13,096, a ratio of 24.8 to 1.

Visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, the comic book series 'Emperor Renari and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aleister's national animal is the Bennu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Reverence.

Aleister is ranked 35,958th in the world and 1st in Shepherds Graveyard for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 8,348.7 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
