The Constitutional Monarchy of Almartia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 619 million Almarties love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of smiffyville. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Almartian economy, worth 43.9 trillion STDS 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 70,917 STDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, nobody knows why the caged foot sings, and dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Almartia's national animal is the foot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Almartia is ranked 29,862nd in the world and 123rd in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 71.71 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
