The Ancient Nordic Lands of Alvalero is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Zander with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, strictly enforced bedtime, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 20.39 billion Alvalerans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aarhus. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alvaleran economy, worth a remarkable 1,795 trillion Alvaleran Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,047 Alvaleran Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's once beautiful countryside have turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, artificial intelligence seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, carrots are orange, apples are red and food waste is increasing, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alvalero's national animal is the White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Norse Mythology.

Alvalero is ranked 55,125th in the world and 1,892nd in Balder for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 67.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
