The Alexandrian Proxy of Alexander Martel is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Von Hresvelg with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.333 billion Alexandrians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alexandrian economy, worth 210 trillion Alexandrian Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 157,961 Alexandrian Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,276,279 per year while the poor average 4,400, a ratio of 290 to 1.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, government officials are phoning up good-looking celebrities to say they want to breed with them, and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alexander Martel's national animal is the Cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vorinism.

Alexander Martel is ranked 3,354th in the world and 2nd in Isle Of Wooloo Kingdom for Most Armed, with 12.48 Weapons Per Person.
