The Armed Republic of Dealt alph is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.076 billion Dealt alphians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Dealt alphian economy, worth a remarkable 3,386 trillion dealts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 419,352 dealts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave, every week is blindness awareness week, and angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dealt alph's national animal is the cats, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dealt alph is ranked 27,809th in the world and 376th in Balder for Most Influential, scoring 1,119 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
