The Community of Alvestad is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.929 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 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 3,139 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 242,839 notings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. 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 267th in the world and 10th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 17,112.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
