The Apocalyptic Wastelands of Allishive is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kells Babin with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.167 billion Allishiveans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astana. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Allishivic economy, worth 509 trillion Allishivic Rubles 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 160,912 Allishivic Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Kells Babin to cartoon bears, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, and caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Allishive's national animal is the Slav, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Allishive is ranked 31,346th in the world and 145th in New Western Atlantic for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 230,350.26 Standard Monetary Units.
