The Inhospitable Ski Slopes of Agalaesia

Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the South Pacific



Population2.28 billion



The Inhospitable Ski Slopes of Agalaesia is a massive, genial nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.28 billion Agalaesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deiliannis. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Agalaesian economy, worth 63.3 trillion Agalaors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,773 Agalaors, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons, the government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, the internet has been placed under government control, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Agalaor mansions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 35,268th in the world and 1,366th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.31 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
