The Federation of Alwand is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Layton with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.174 billion Alwandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perryville. The average income tax rate is 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Alwandian economy, worth 56.3 trillion Laytons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,981 Laytons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Historic buildings are being demolished to allow for road-widening in the city centre, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, President Layton has just been declared ruler of Alwand in an international press conference, and Catholicism has been named as Alwand's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alwand's national animal is the Blobfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Alwand is ranked 72,756th in the world and 3,166th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
