The Community of Alvestad is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.545 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, socially-minded 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 3,875 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 249,288 notings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is giving peace a chance, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. 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 230,739th in the world and 6,921st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -87.09 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
