LeaderEmperor Renari


The Bukowskian State of Aleister is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Renari with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.79 billion Aleis are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Telkopo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The thriving Alein economy, worth 453 trillion Shills a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 78,255 Shills, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 305,563 per year while the poor average 13,669, a ratio of 22.4 to 1.

Visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, justice is available only to those who can afford its price tag, the comic book series 'Emperor Renari and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aleister's national animal is the Bennu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Reverence.

Aleister is ranked 100,913th in the world and 3,392nd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 50.69 on the Human Development Index.
