The Dominion of Saint Alaric is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mister T with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.758 billion Saint Alaricians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lusitania. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Saint Alarician economy, worth 228 trillion gils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,124 gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Alaric's national animal is the narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
