The Federation of Alen-roshh is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 370 million Roshhites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corporate HQ. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Roshhian economy, worth 43.1 trillion Cores a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 116,491 Cores, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, school children are expected to know the names of all seven hundred native tribes and their cultural practices, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Alen-roshh's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Alen-roshh is ranked 151,436th in the world and 1,621st in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 11.96 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
