The Nomadic Peoples of Alphabeth is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 223 million Alphas have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Alphabethian economy, worth 12.6 trillion guldens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 56,600 guldens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, extreme political groups are outlawed, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alphabeth's national animal is the vogelbekdier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
