The Kingdom of Alvnhiem is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 578 million Alvnhiemians 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 Defense, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Alvnhiemian economy, worth 24.4 trillion lientras a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,281 lientras, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government solves problems by tossing money at the nearest geek, parole board directors light up a joint before telling hash-brownie baking grannies that they have to stay behind bars, students abandon classrooms for online education, and Alvnhiem has designated Alvnhiem City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alvnhiem's national animal is the fish , which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Alvnhiem is ranked 56,310th in the world and 75th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,722.84 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
