The Kingdom of Alexandrite EE is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.119 billion Alexandrite EEians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.9%.

The strong Alexandrite EEian economy, worth 103 trillion Krystal Koins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 48,617 Krystal Koins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 199,845 per year while the poor average 7,800, a ratio of 25.6 to 1.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, even immigrants complain that immigrants keep taking their jobs, children keel over while singing "Leader Gives Us the Water of Life", and train stations can be 'armful places. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alexandrite EE's national animal is the Pink Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Alexandrite EE is ranked 186,620th in the world and 144th in House Elegarth for Nudest, with 56 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
