The Home of Alf Landon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Harry Truman with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 21.843 billion Alf Landonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roosevelt. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Alf Landonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,733 trillion euros a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 79,355 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, elite teams of assassins have been sent into Brasilistan, the armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan, and captured Brasilistani POWs are staying in 5-star hotels. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alf Landon's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is social democracy.

Alf Landon is ranked 7,009th in the world and 190th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 127 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
