The Empire of Alluviana is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Pencil 1 with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, infamous sell-swords, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.788 billion Alluvians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aloris. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Alluvian economy, worth 779 trillion Muras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 162,790 Muras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The bourgeoisie are asked nicely to hand over the means of production, criminals are thrown to the seahorses to repay their debt to society, the country's population is reported with a margin of error of several billions, and the government pours millions of Muras into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alluviana's national animal is the seahorse, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Alluviana is ranked 2,657th in the world and 153rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.88 on the Human Development Index.
