The Inhospitable Ski Slopes of Agalaesia is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.032 billion Agalaesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deiliannis. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Agalaesian economy, worth 268 trillion Agalaors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,338 Agalaors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", citizens tint their front windows to avoid starring in the 'TV Detector Patrol Unit' documentary, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, and hotels often double as quarantine zones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agalaesia's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Elfism.

Agalaesia is ranked 228,444th in the world and 6,393rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -18 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
