The Empire Republic of Alski is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ito Alski with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 8.199 billion Alskians 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapporo. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Alskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,380 trillion Baslas a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,344 Baslas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Alskians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, military equipment is being auctioned off to extend comatose centenarians' lives, and visiting dignitaries often end up cuddling in the hot tub with Ito Alski. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alski's national animal is the Alska dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kitsunism.

Alski is ranked 1,437th in the world and 30th in 10000 Islands for Nicest Citizens, with 82.52 average smiles per day.
