Location: Ashen Fields

Regional Influence: Apprentice


The Emirate of Horatio Alger is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and daily referendums. The compassionate, devout population of 8.319 billion Horatio Algerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Horatio Algerian economy, worth 357 trillion Monies a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,948 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, and acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Horatio Alger's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Horatio Alger is ranked 123,698th in the world and 13th in Ashen Fields for Smartest Citizens, with 30.08 quips per hour.
