The Federation of Aldenbourg is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Friedrich von Bracenburg-Dermont with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 831 million Aldenbourgers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saxeberg. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Aldenbourgian economy, worth 67.6 trillion reichsmarks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,372 reichsmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and Friedrich von Bracenburg-Dermont has just been declared ruler of Aldenbourg in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aldenbourg's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aldenbourg is ranked 152,835th in the world and 5,799th in The East Pacific for Nudest, with 97 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
