The Federal Union of Almorea is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Alasdair Hallowell with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 4.587 billion Almoreans 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellsburgh. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Almorean economy, worth 422 trillion Almorean dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,097 Almorean dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tabloids coo over President Alasdair Hallowell's expected child, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Almorean roads, anyone can get ahead in life if they want to, and village elders are often called in to interpret voting outcomes in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Almorea's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ecclesiastic Act Christianity.

Almorea is ranked 2,507th in the world and 7th in The Western Isles for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,731.54 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
