The Rogue Nation of Alfredstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Brother Blob with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.274 billion Alfredstanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of East-Porkpieshire. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alfredstanian economy, worth 635 trillion Dusts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 194,214 Dusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Players panic as they discover the newest chain can reset their populations and even delete their nations (Alfredstan has found 2 easter eggs), visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity, and all work and no play has rendered the nation's children somewhat intelligent but also remarkably dull. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alfredstan's national animal is the Blob Fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Blobism.

Alfredstan is ranked 218,371st in the world and 7,580th in Lazarus for Nudest, with 2.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
