The Alpha Conglomerate

Population2.727 billion

CapitalThe Hub


The Unified Mega-Corporation of The Alpha Conglomerate is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.727 billion Alphanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hub. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Alphan economy, worth 411 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Retail, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 151,048 Units, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and child labor has been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Alpha Conglomerate's national animal is the Homeless, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hyper-Consumerism.

The Alpha Conglomerate is ranked 12,632nd in the world and 737th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 83.72 on the Human Development Index.
