The Federal Republic of Alpenburg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Federal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 15.219 billion Alpenburgers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bern. The average income tax rate is 44.1%.

The all-consuming Alpenburger economy, worth a remarkable 1,342 trillion francs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,179 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore, no one born in Alpenburg can fix a leaky faucet, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alpenburg's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Alpenburg is ranked 16,324th in the world and 10th in Gay Equality for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,479.06 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
