The Good Life of Alpha V is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Charlie Evans with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, infamous sell-swords, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.878 billion Colonists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Earth Colony 5. The average income tax rate is 47.0%.

The powerhouse Alpha V economy, worth 252 trillion Federation Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,175 Federation Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The libraries of Alpha V are staffed by lone, lonely librarians, citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, and old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive. Alpha V's national animal is the Settler, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Charlie Evans.

Alpha V is ranked 229,626th in the world and 221st in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
