The Inhospitable Ski Slopes of Agalaesia is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.037 billion Agalaesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deiliannis. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Agalaesian economy, worth 160 trillion Agalaors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,697 Agalaors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Concert halls sport signs proclaiming "No Shorts, Sandals or Swastikas", the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agalaesia's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Elfism.

Agalaesia is ranked 66,040th in the world and 1,182nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 70.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
