The Confederacy of Independent Alignments is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Hugh Devodias with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.964 billion IAs 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berth. The average income tax rate is 78.4%.

The frighteningly efficient IA economy, worth 448 trillion IA centimes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,241 IA centimes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The national defense strategy is a little floppy, little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, motels cater primarily to adulterers, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independent Alignments's national animal is the gazelle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Independent Alignments is ranked 12,664th in the world and 1st in Council for International Development for Most Developed, scoring 88.65 on the Human Development Index.
