The United Republic of Alstin is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Alfred Jones with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.139 billion Alstinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alstin. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alstinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,378 trillion Gils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 224,551 Gils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and much of Alstin's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime is totally unknown. Alstin's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Chantry of Alstin.

Alstin is ranked 84,638th in the world and 20th in Concorde for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,405.51 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
