Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Retired Delegate of Alsted is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by a federal presidency with a fair hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.332 billion Alstedians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Junipero. The average income tax rate is 71.8%.

The strong Alstedian economy, worth a remarkable 1,060 trillion Alstedian Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 49,725 Alstedian Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Alsted to be bombproof, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, planespotters are emigrating in droves, and corporate lobbying has been outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alsted's national animal is the Snowy Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alsted is ranked 1st in the world and 1st in Europe for Most Influential, scoring 1.15 million on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
