Alice Gardens

Population14.608 billion

CapitalEclipse Phase


The Transhumanist Dominion of Alice Gardens is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by EngulfedObject with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 14.608 billion Pods are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eclipse Phase. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alice Gardensian economy, worth a remarkable 4,494 trillion Augmentations a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 307,694 Augmentations, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque, military pistols are more secure than the national treasury, and worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alice Gardens's national animal is the Exodite, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Transhumanism.

Alice Gardens is ranked 389th in the world and 22nd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.01 Years.
