The Aragon-Hapsburg Dynasty of Almerdonia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its smutty television, parental licensing program, and fear of technology. The cynical population of 650 million Almerdonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valencia de la Catalunya. The average income tax rate is 47.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Almerdonian economy, worth 57.3 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,157 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', Valencia de la Catalunya's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Almerdonia's national animal is the White Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Almerdonia is ranked 31,784th in the world and 7th in nasunia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 729.52 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
