The Pingdeng Republic of Alsatian Island is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alexei Vasiliev with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.095 billion Alsatians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monmouth. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alsatian economy, worth 409 trillion pointless capitalist schemes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 132,305 pointless capitalist schemes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Over-inflated fears of a "Y1" bug have turned humble IT workers into millionaires (Alsatian Island has found 4 easter eggs), the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, and shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Alsatian Island. 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 alsatian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alsatian Island is ranked 47,975th in the world and 2,552nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,206.73 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
