The IMPERIUM OF MAN of Empire of the alder is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by GOD EMPEROR with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.998 billion alderians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of capital city of the alder race. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Empire of the alderian economy, worth a remarkable 1,759 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 251,472 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, Squig populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, and ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of the alder's national animal is the Squig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is CULT Mechanicus.

Empire of the alder is ranked 3,697th in the world and 53rd in the Rejected Realms for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 32 Valid Endorsements.
