The Armed Republic of Reptilians from the Alternate Earth is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Waral Thresherfang with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.817 billion Reptilians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underspire. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Reptilian economy, worth 310 trillion Charged Sprockets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 171,026 Charged Sprockets, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The Reptilian Tourism Bureau has described the abolition of coastal defences as a "kick to the groyne", adult unemployment is rising as available jobs are filled by young children, teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, and it's entirely possible foreign diplomats misheard when Reptilians from the Alternate Earth offered the words "peace be upon you". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Reptilians from the Alternate Earth's national animal is the Monitor Lizard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Reptilians from the Alternate Earth is ranked 147,219th in the world and 5,667th in the South Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 11.75 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
