The Empire Federation of Alski is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sakurako Yasuda with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 3.924 billion Alskians 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapporo. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Alskian economy, worth 545 trillion Baslas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,092 Baslas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Alski's radio stations, the nation's police officers are famously miserable-looking, the meaning of life was recently discovered in the patch notes for Version 1.42, and therapists can always squeeze in another house-call. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alski's national animal is the Alska dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kitsunism.

Alski is ranked 25,401st in the world and 299th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.11 percentage of bribes refused.
