The Confederacy of Aleusmela is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 9.264 billion Aleusmelans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Aleusmelan economy, worth 214 trillion Credit Chits 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 23,129 Credit Chits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aleusmela's national animal is the Space Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Aleusmela is ranked 73,902nd in the world and 2,753rd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 214 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
