The Empire of Great Aletia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Matthias I with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.554 billion Aletians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aletian economy, worth 558 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,522 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in The Local Cluster are never on time for important appointments, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', populations of two-headed Golden Eagles have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Aletia's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Zahrahinism.

Great Aletia is ranked 32,593rd in the world and 14th in The Local Cluster for Most Beautiful Environments, with 788.39 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
