The Federal Republic of Alpenburg is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Federal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 15.588 billion Alpenburgers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bern. The average income tax rate is 44.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Alpenburger economy, worth a remarkable 1,380 trillion francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,593 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous", criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, ranchers are adept at mimicking wolf attacks, and group hugs break out during floor votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alpenburg's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alpenburg is ranked 203,629th in the world and 12th in Gay Equality for Most Primitive, scoring -174.46 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
