The Incorporated States of Almurta is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Nicholas Hargrove with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.007 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, prioritizes Defense, with Education also on the agenda, while Administration and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Joya. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The very strong Almurtan economy, worth 683 trillion Federal Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 68,288 Federal Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 269,187 per year while the poor average 11,745, a ratio of 22.9 to 1.

It's not only teenagers who mess around with fake IDs, a spy for a spy makes the whole world less radioactive, the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Almurta's national animal is the Rock Ptarmigan.

Almurta is ranked 85,928th in the world and 83rd in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 0.39 Bank.
