The Militaristic nation of Allexandretta is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Helen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.879 billion Allexandrettans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anubis. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Allexandrettan economy, worth a remarkable 2,032 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 257,914 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of cats and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Allexandretta's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cat.
