The Alpenbund

Population1.428 billion


The Recyclatron of The Alpenbund is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 1.428 billion Kyrberois have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 8.8%.

The strong Alpenbundian economy, worth 80.9 trillion Franks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 56,677 Franks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Alpenbund's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Alpenbund is ranked 124,423rd in the world and 57th in Shinka for Most Developed, scoring 54.91 on the Human Development Index.
