The Almighty Kingdom of Allistair Union is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Almighty Emperor Theo with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, public floggings, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.028 billion Allirians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shielring. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Allirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,856 trillion Sovereigns 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 Trout Farming. 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 369,176 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Allistair Union's national animal is the Astrunovian Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Karullan Faith.

Allistair Union is ranked 36,788th in the world and 101st in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,633.53 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
