The Trade Empire of Alenshire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Trade Prince Albany Gallywix with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, irreverence towards religion, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.451 billion Alerians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neuburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Alerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,547 trillion Quills a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 207,737 Quills, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 798,714 per year while the poor average 37,206, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.

Alerian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Trade Prince Albany Gallywix, the nation is so apathetic that Alerians can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, people all over Alenshire are dying of 'Mad Leviathan Disease', and anniversaries of major historical events pass unnoticed. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Alenshire's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Taoism.

Alenshire is ranked 34,840th in the world and 88th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,883.9 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
