The Emperor of Alpha Wolf is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Alpha Van Wolf with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.573 billion Alpha Wolfians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha Wolf City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Alpha Wolfian economy, worth a remarkable 2,227 trillion Wolfmarks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 177,184 Wolfmarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 513,886 per year while the poor average 48,385, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alpha Wolf's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pagan.

Alpha Wolf is ranked 131,315th in the world and 27th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 171.39 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
