Saint Alaric

Population6 billion

LeaderMister T


The Dominion of Saint Alaric is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Mister T with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 6 billion Saint Alaricians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lusitania. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Alarician economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion gils 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,167 gils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, Mister T's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Alaric's national animal is the narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Saint Alaric is ranked 216,130th in the world and 7,111th in Osiris for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.37 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
