The Empire of Alfashia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 570 million Alfashians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of kairi. The average income tax rate is 49.0%.

The Alfashian economy, worth 24.3 trillion faris a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,578 faris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Alfashia's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alfashia's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alfashia is ranked 96,030th in the world and 40th in European Union for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,594.64 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
