The Imperial Republic of The Alpen Empire is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaiser Henry Demon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.696 billion Europeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The very strong European economy, worth 105 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 62,302 Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 190,322 per year while the poor average 15,808, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Organ donation is compulsory, The Alpen Empire has designated Berlin as its capital city, Kaiser Henry Demon has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, and German Christianity has been named as The Alpen Empire's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. The Alpen Empire's national animal is the Reichsadler, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is German Christianity.

The Alpen Empire is ranked 83,717th in the world and 1st in Empire Of the Anarchic States for Most Patriotic, with 16.37 flags saluted per person per day.
