The People's Republic of Denalias is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 595 million Denaliasians 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 Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Denaliasian economy, worth 29.4 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,406 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Denalias's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Denalias is ranked 149,131st in the world and 2nd in The State of Nature for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 40.02 on the Hayek Index.
