The Grand Union of Aleria and Tiristan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Karl I with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, barren, inhospitable landscape, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.179 billion Alerians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bucharest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Aleria and Tiristanian economy, worth 383 trillion Bronze Marks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 91,770 Bronze Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 323,130 per year while the poor average 18,871, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

Minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aleria and Tiristan's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of the Alerians.

Aleria and Tiristan is ranked 158,157th in the world and 7,961st in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 24.23 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
