Regional Influence: Sprat

Location: The North Pacific



Population420 million



The Armed Republic of Alusten is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 420 million 𝕬𝖑𝖚𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖙𝖎𝖓𝖔𝖘 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 Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 𝕬𝖑𝖚𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖙𝖊. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving 𝕬𝖑𝖚𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖙𝖎𝖓𝖔 economy, worth 30.5 trillion ₱𝖊𝖗𝖗𝖆s a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,561 ₱𝖊𝖗𝖗𝖆s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in 𝕬𝖑𝖚𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖙𝖊's playgrounds, the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alusten's national animal is the 𝖉𝖊𝖊𝖗, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alusten is ranked 151,137th in the world and 7,692nd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -9.8 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
