The Republic of Alfama

“Forever Free”

Location: the South Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Republic of Alfama is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mr Notacat with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.707 billion Alfamen are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belém. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alfaman economy, worth 204 trillion guilders a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,934 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cat is one of the most popular forenames in Alfama, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and urban entrepreneurs are busy introducing cockroaches into restaurant kitchens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alfama's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alfama is ranked 3,463rd in the world and 87th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 16,310.6 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
