The White Hat Hacker of Feria-Alkaline is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Felicia Light with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.041 billion Ferian-Alkalineans 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transitor. The average income tax rate is 14.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ferian-Alkalinean economy, worth a remarkable 2,488 trillion Ferian ribas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 225,372 Ferian ribas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

College athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, people are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, Feria-Alkaline isn't what it used to be, and rumor has it that President Felicia Light has won three lotteries in a row. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Feria-Alkaline's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Universal Timeslots.

Feria-Alkaline is ranked 103,617th in the world and 308th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 83.71 on the Hayek Index.
