The Incorporated States of Almurta is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Nicholas Hargrove with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.041 billion Almurtans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Joya. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.

The very strong Almurtan economy, worth 467 trillion Federal Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 66,447 Federal Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 256,109 per year while the poor average 11,853, a ratio of 21.6 to 1.

Convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Almurta's radio stations, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Almurta's national animal is the Rock Ptarmigan.

Almurta is ranked 71,496th in the world and 135th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 79.23 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
