The Serene Republic of AlpacaGardens is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Shepherd with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.808 billion Gardenias are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camelid Sanctum. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient AlpacaGardenian economy, worth 937 trillion Hay Bales a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,010 Hay Bales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, interest in globalism never flags, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime is totally unknown. AlpacaGardens's national animal is the Alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

AlpacaGardens is ranked 221,869th in the world and 249th in Sonindia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -15.2 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
