The Community of Alvestad is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and lack of airports. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.377 billion Alvestadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of drug vally. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alvestadian economy, worth a remarkable 2,997 trillion notings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 242,179 notings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and Alvestad's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime is totally unknown. Alvestad's national animal is the with ekedog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shamanism.

Alvestad is ranked 3,254th in the world and 72nd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 2,997 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
