The Marvelous Misadventures of Alkasia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Karahelios with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.689 billion Alkasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcsine. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alkasian economy, worth 907 trillion alkas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,656 alkas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, newspapers are running a front-page picture of President Karahelios holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, and police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program. Crime is totally unknown. Alkasia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alkasia is ranked 75,657th in the world and 2,106th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 1,722.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
