The White Hat Hacker of Feria-Alkaline is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Felicia Light with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.414 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 tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, 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 7.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ferian-Alkalinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,841 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 frequent. Average income is an amazing 218,869 Ferian ribas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Several inches are being added to first class seating, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, and "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up. 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 2,121st in the world and 17th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 8,379.11 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
