Capital: Alpha (population 30,000).
Language: Alphatian, Heldannic.
Coinage: Alphatian Standard.
Taxes: Ericall imposes an income tax of 20% on everyone, a sales tax of 5%, and an import tax of 2% (since Alpha became member of the NACE this tax only concerns goods coming from outside the Confederation, but has been raised from 1% to 2%; this tax does not concern goods from Karameikos due to a trade agreement between that nation and the Confederation). Barons that still recognise Ericall as their king must give him 20% of the taxes they levy in their dominion, but they can have a different tax system. Only 5% goes to the Imperial treasury (this rate may be changed at any time by the Council if Alpha is no more military threatened by the Knights).
Government type: Semiautonomous monarchy owing loyalty to the New Alphatian Confederate Empire since Flaurmont 22, AC 1013. Few territories outside Alpha remain loyal to King Ericall.
