The Most Serene Republic of Alscopian Card Guild is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 497 million Alscopian Card Guildians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Alscopian Card Guildian economy, worth 34.8 trillion guilders 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 led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Average income is 70,002 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, and policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alscopian Card Guild's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alscopian Card Guild is ranked 214,398th in the world and 1st in Alscopian Farmlands for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -13.08 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
