The Community of Alvestad is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.728 billion Alvestadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of drug vally. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Alvestadian economy, worth a remarkable 3,627 trillion notings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 246,316 notings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife. Crime is totally unknown. Alvestad's national animal is the with ekedog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shamanism.

Alvestad is ranked 177,030th in the world and 4,336th in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -72.89 on the Rand Index.
