The White Hat Hacker of Feria-Alkaline is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Felicia Light with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.011 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, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Transitor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ferian-Alkalinean economy, worth a remarkable 1,572 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 224,229 Ferian ribas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 643,817 per year while the poor average 62,100, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

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 4,620th in the world and 78th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 224,229.56 Standard Monetary Units.
