Alatoma is an economic powerhouse whose exports supply many countries. They also give military support and currently defend many overseas locations.
The name Alatoma is derived from a small tribal village in the area called Alta Loma. The two words were combined to form the new name of Alatoma.
The standard way to refer to a citizen of Alatoma is as a "Alatomian."
Alatoma was first settled by the native tribal peoples of the village Alta Loma. From there, settlers from around the area came in and integrated with the tribe. In 1963, a mason and plumber named Hans Lange (1913-1970) declared the now bustling city the independent city-state of Alta Loma. After 6 years of building a working government, a coup was staged and Lange was executed by rebels in 1970. In the following years, a counter-rebellion was staged and the rebels were removed from power in 1981. In 2010, a rebellion broke out and the nation is now a dual-power dictatorship with two consuls.
Alatoma is comprised of four different sections. In the south, there is a hot, dry desert. Along the west it is coastal plains. The center is rugged mountainous terrain, and the north is thick woodland.

Planes are a favorite for long distance international trips, and cars are the most used by Alatoma in short trips both national and international. In order to reach the territories, you may use the Rail and Road bridge to Oht, take an airplane to Sacksburg, or a boat to either. If you wish to reach Sacksburg by car or train, you may ferry a car or take the General Nikita Jockson Memorial Bridge between Oht and Sacksburg.
Alatoma has been running on fossil fuels since its creation. Recently, there have been riots that have forced Alatoma to move to other methods. For example, the entire territory of Oht is run by nuclear power, Sacksburg is reliant on wind and water turbines, but mainland Alatoma is still using old methods.
