The Republic of Alqulonde is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Olw with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.869 billion Alqualondeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tirion-upon-Tna. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alqulondean economy, worth 182 trillion Ringwraiths a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,867 Ringwraiths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, unemployment rates have skyrocketed as businesses abandon the country in search of cheap labour, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alqulonde's national animal is the Ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaism.

Alqulonde is ranked 23,807th in the world and 1,088th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,838.66 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
