The Empire Federation of Alski is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sakurako Yasuda with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.966 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 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alskian economy, worth 327 trillion Baslas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,541 Baslas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More citizens have access to Maxtopian Grass than clean drinking water, Alskian watches are often the only thing to survive a disaster intact, only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. 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 11,518th in the world and 128th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 56.96 Whatever.
