The Federal Republic of Alpenburg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Federal Council with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 13.531 billion Alpenburgers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bern. The average income tax rate is 44.7%.

The all-consuming Alpenburger economy, worth a remarkable 1,187 trillion francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,773 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore, no one born in Alpenburg can fix a leaky faucet, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alpenburg's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alpenburg is ranked 198,241st in the world and 315th in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.25 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
