The Republic of Halexandria is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 275 million Halexandrians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tybur. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Halexandrian economy, worth 20.8 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,765 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halexandria's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Halexandria is ranked 13,039th in the world and 5th in Lisseum for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.24 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
