Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Balderan Foreign Minister of Alvalero is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Zander with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 15.551 billion Alvalerans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avesta. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alvaleran economy, worth a remarkable 1,392 trillion Alvaleran Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,524 Alvaleran Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's once beautiful countryside have turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, artificial intelligence seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alvalero's national animal is the Monster White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Norse Mythology.

Alvalero is ranked 133,101st in the world and 3,615th in Balder for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.98 Crimes Per Hour.
