The Republic of Aldund is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Garfield Wessex with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 19.274 billion Aldundians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eriel. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aldundian economy, worth a remarkable 2,276 trillion Reis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,117 Reis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aldund's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aldund is ranked 13,613th in the world and 47th in New Western Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 87.3 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
