The Red Mercantile Commune of Alentejo and Algarve is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grã-Cônsul Jerónimo de Sousa with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 10.283 billion Compadrês are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Castro Marim. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Compadrê economy, worth a remarkable 2,088 trillion çifrãoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 203,105 çifrãoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, and doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alentejo and Algarve's national animal is the Lince Ibérico, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Alentejo and Algarve is ranked 2,974th in the world and 8th in Portugal for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 63.91 Whatever.
