The Imperium of Algrund is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Venerileus Cynexal with an even hand, and notable for its teetotalling pirates, museums and concert halls, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.35 billion Algrundians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veqalzuth. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Algrundian economy, worth 146 trillion Xanlauses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 108,759 Xanlauses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, citizens must inform the government each time they have a haircut, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime is relatively low. Algrund's national animal is the Ulvayr, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ceraqylism.

Algrund is ranked 106,932nd in the world and 5,889th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
