The University of The Alma Mater is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 27.503 billion Students love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Tower. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The enormous but inefficient a Student economy, worth a remarkable 2,797 trillion Student Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 101,717 Student Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bronze and marble supplies are running low as sculptors depict full-figured subjects, rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Alma Mater's national animal is the Bookwurm, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Evilutionism.

The Alma Mater is ranked 146,750th in the world and 5,458th in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 518.09 milliStalins.
