The Transhumanist Dominion of Alice Gardens is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by EngulfedObject with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.551 billion Pods love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eclipse Phase. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alice Gardensian economy, worth a remarkable 5,451 trillion Augmentations a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 329,367 Augmentations, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some Alice Gardensian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, cheering flag-waving citizens don't like to think too hard about politics, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alice Gardens's national animal is the Exodite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Transhumanism.

Alice Gardens is ranked 1,450th in the world and 64th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 329,367.37 Standard Monetary Units.
