The Community of Algolu is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 675 million Algoluans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Swampwater. The average income tax rate is 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Algoluan economy, worth 56.6 trillion talents a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,898 talents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, stale 'yo mamma' insults have been replaced by 'your maternal DNA' insults, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Algolu's national animal is the ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Algolu is ranked 142,638th in the world and 1,409th in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 56.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
