The Commonwealth of Alyrria is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Valerian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.702 billion Alyrrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tor Cairn. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Alyrrian economy, worth 173 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 101,751 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Alyrrian Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, and Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alyrria's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Science.

Alyrria is ranked 196,967th in the world and 9,468th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.66 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
