Great Algerstonia

Population4.859 billion

LeaderBob the Builder


The Not too bad Nation of Great Algerstonia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bob the Builder with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.859 billion Algerstonese are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of no. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Algerstonian economy, worth 347 trillion rubleses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,441 rubleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", Algerstonese are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom, a performance of the hit musical "Mamma Tua" has been delayed after squatters were found sleeping in the orchestra pit, and sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Algerstonia's national animal is the burrito, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianisn.

Great Algerstonia is ranked 37,784th in the world and 1,135th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 70.72 on the Human Development Index.
