The Digital Democracy of Alpinea is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gadg8eer with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.662 billion Alpineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Oliver. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Alpinean economy, worth 549 trillion Tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is 82,407 Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alpinea's national animal is the Doglefox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alpinea is ranked 176,976th in the world and 5,962nd in Lazarus for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 23,403.81 Standard Monetary Units.
