The Republic of Aletian is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Tom Cleverey with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The democratic population of 7.308 billion Aletias 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elrios. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aletianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,412 trillion Als a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 193,307 Als, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, baby dolls thrown in the trash are a leading cause of panic attacks, and weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aletian's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Neko.

Aletian is ranked 54,918th in the world and 1,749th in Lazarus for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
