The Marvelous Misadventures of Alkasia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Karahelios with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.657 billion Alkasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcsine. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alkasian economy, worth 903 trillion alkas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,656 alkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, newspapers are running a front-page picture of President Karahelios holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, and police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program. Crime is totally unknown. Alkasia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alkasia is ranked 2,113th in the world and 15th in the Rejected Realms for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 74 Valid Endorsements.
