The Republic of Alaback is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Hannah Wilhelmina with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 4.761 billion Alabackians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fragenhaus. The average income tax rate is 15.2%.

The strong Alabackian economy, worth 427 trillion Dolarks 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, 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 89,773 Dolarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, huge explosions in the sky are a daily occurrence in the cities, President Hannah Wilhelmina has just been declared ruler of Alaback in an international press conference, and Faith of the Three Gods has been named as Alaback's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Alaback's national animal is the Alabackian Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Faith of the Three Gods.

Alaback is ranked 31,619th in the world and 12th in United Nations UN for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,958.16 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
