Saint Alaric

Population2.343 billion

LeaderMister T


The Dominion of Saint Alaric is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mister T with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.343 billion Saint Alaricians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lusitania. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Alarician economy, worth 355 trillion gils 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 Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 151,716 gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', the new national anthem passes the Turing Test, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and the nation is in perpetual campaign mode. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Alaric's national animal is the narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Saint Alaric is ranked 145,551st in the world and 7,074th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -308.2 on the Hayek Index.
