Population2.898 billion

LeaderPark Sungjin


The Republic of Aldros is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Park Sungjin with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate population of 2.898 billion Aldrosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wyatt. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aldrosian economy, worth 283 trillion Rikyms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 97,880 Rikyms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Supervisors in Aldros commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon, and three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aldros's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aldros is ranked 11,574th in the world and 653rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 83.82 Years.
