The Commonwealth of Alyrria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Valerian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.855 billion Alyrrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tor Cairn. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Alyrrian economy, worth 189 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 102,058 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alyrria's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Science.

Alyrria is ranked 182,333rd in the world and 8,043rd in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77.89 on the Rand Index.
