The Nuclear Salamanders of The Alcalan Empire is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.937 billion Salamanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vault 001. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Alcali economy, worth 184 trillion iwas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 95,101 iwas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Alcalan Empire's national animal is the Salamander.

The Alcalan Empire is ranked 165,912th in the world and 54th in The DankLeft Commune for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
