The Queen's State of Alkeefer is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 5.986 billion Alkeeferians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Alkeeferian economy, worth 26.8 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,485 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in Alkeefer, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of Alkeefer in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alkeefer's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
