The Sovereign Socialist State of Alderos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.687 billion Alderians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alver. The average income tax rate is 63.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alderian economy, worth 751 trillion red allers 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an amazing 279,612 red allers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aeroplanes have been converted into housing units after all air travel was outlawed, the nation won three wars against Brancaland this weekend, train stations can be 'armful places, and the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alderos's national animal is the Northern Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Alderianism.

Alderos is ranked 184,875th in the world and 208th in The Western Isles for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 38.94 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
