The Petrolheads of Alsatian Island is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jeremy Corbyn with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, vat-grown people, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.698 billion Alsatians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Monmouth City. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Alsatian economy, worth 116 trillion yuhnes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 68,765 yuhnes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alsatian Island's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alsatian Island is ranked 96,079th in the world and 4,051st in the West Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 94,367.39 Standard Monetary Units.
