The Foreign Civilisation of AliEN A is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Alien Baba with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.806 billion Aliens 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seraphia. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alienic economy, worth 414 trillion Alienic Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,608 Alienic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Alien Baba is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and AA-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AliEN A's national animal is the Alien, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alienism.

AliEN A is ranked 94,766th in the world and 571st in 10000 Islands for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,677.87 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
