The Theocracy of Alganoa is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 317 million Algae are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Alganoan economy, worth 9.21 trillion Heroas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. Average income is 29,061 Heroas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", organ donation is compulsory, Harry Potter books are banned, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alganoa's national animal is the Lipsig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Alganoa is ranked 112,151st in the world and 6th in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Most Influential, scoring 95 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
