The Matriarchy of Alzette is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 745 million Alzetteans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lebel-sur-Quévillon. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Alzettean economy, worth 43.2 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 58,044 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alzette's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alzette is ranked 31,422nd in the world and 1st in Infowars World for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
