The Community of Alvestad is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and fear of technology. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.158 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 2,879 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 178,230 notings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Alvestadian grocery store. 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 87,510th in the world and 1,779th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 68 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
