The United Republic of Alstin is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Benjamin Ryder with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.971 billion Alstinians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alstin. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alstinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,111 trillion United Republic Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 235,332 United Republic Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, billions of United Republic Dollars are being blown on orbital weapons development, advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, and companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave. Crime is totally unknown. Alstin's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Chantry of Alstin.

Alstin is ranked 46,995th in the world and 6th in Greater Ixnay for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,912.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
