The Digital Democracy of Alpinea is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Gadg8eer with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.842 billion Alpineans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Oliver. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Alpinean economy, worth 489 trillion Tokens a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,768 Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, water fights now end with thousands dead, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Alpinea is often a lifetime appointment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alpinea's national animal is the Doglefox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alpinea is ranked 156,491st in the world and 7,655th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.68 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
