The Autocracy of Alekseandrea is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The man with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.787 billion Alekseandreans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Echo base. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alekseandrean economy, worth a remarkable 1,856 trillion Workhours a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 273,516 Workhours, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, companies are turning to trained Tortoises for their most menial jobs, and the backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alekseandrea's national animal is the Tortoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Alekseandrea is ranked 802nd in the world and 4th in Spiritus for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 100.05 Effective Tax Rate.
