The Apocalyptic Wastelands of Allishive is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kells Babin with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.341 billion Allishiveans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astana. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Allishivic economy, worth 551 trillion Allishivic Rubles 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 165,063 Allishivic Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, patriots insist that size does matter, and it is common to see Maxémon Trainer listed on Allishivic resumés. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Allishive's national animal is the Slav, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Allishive is ranked 165,904th in the world and 511th in New Western Atlantic for Most Inclusive, scoring 14.12 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
