The Armed Republic of The Ales is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 688 million Albertans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alberta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The powerhouse Alesian economy, worth 65.2 trillion Canadian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 94,707 Canadian dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 369,085 per year while the poor average 16,596, a ratio of 22.2 to 1.

Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, and cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ales's national animal is the Grizzly, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Ales is ranked 25,299th in the world and 34th in Texas for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 104.09 on the Hayek Index.
