Grandi Alberi

The Republic of Grandi Alberi is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 186 million Alberinos are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.1%.

The powerhouse Alberino economy, worth 13.2 trillion Ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 71,036 Ducats, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 221,245 per year while the poor average 17,529, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. Grandi Alberi's national animal is the Tropical Rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Grandi Alberi is ranked 44,323rd in the world and 36th in APSIA for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 51,075.36 Standard Monetary Units.
