The Republic of Alphonsia is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 550 million Alphonsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York City. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Alphonsian economy, worth 48.3 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,833 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

City budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alphonsia's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alphonsia is ranked 79,090th in the world and 181st in The Internationale for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,687.43 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
