The United Socialist States of Alternan is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.079 billion Alternanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solburg. The average income tax rate is 65.8%.

The thriving Alternanian economy, worth 94.8 trillion Res a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 87,850 Res, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, lumberjacks only use certified eco-friendly chainsaws, right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, and politicians live in luxury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alternan's national animal is the Red Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alternan is ranked 51,552nd in the world and 526th in Europe for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,606.84 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
