The Federal Republic of Alitani is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Alita with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 847 million Alitanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alitania. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alitanian economy, worth 95.6 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 112,878 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Alitanian Babysitters Club has proven to be a huge relief to stressed-out parents across the nation, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alitani's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alitani is ranked 202,426th in the world and 441st in The Free Nations Region for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -81.62 on the Hayek Index.
