The Red Mercantile Commune of Alentejo and Algarve is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Grã-Cônsul Jerónimo de Sousa with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 13.243 billion Compadrês are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castro Marim. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Compadrê economy, worth a remarkable 2,795 trillion çifrãoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 211,123 çifrãoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cat memes without alt text are now illegal, Grã-Cônsul Jerónimo de Sousa's online image is the very model of a modern major leader, factories place endangered birds in their rafters in pursuit of government protections, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alentejo and Algarve's national animal is the Lince Ibérico, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Alentejo and Algarve is ranked 273,759th in the world and 182nd in Portugal for Fattest Citizens, with 3.87 Obesity Rate.
