The Alkoulian Imperial Empire of Alkoul is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ian Dominick with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 16.105 billion Alkoulians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Alkoulian economy, worth a remarkable 1,438 trillion Crowns a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,349 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alkoul's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alkoul is ranked 75,445th in the world and 20th in The Commonwealth of Crowns for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,005.84 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
