The Community of Alvestad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.527 billion Alvestadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 2,943 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 178,088 notings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Alvestad, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, government officials who do an offal job get smoked, and people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size. 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 240,448th in the world and 7,582nd in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 4.56 Insults Per Minute.
