The Armed Republic of Alt-Tegel is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 553 million Alt-Tegelians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Borsighallen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Alt-Tegelian economy, worth 67.3 trillion Tegel-Teuros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 121,719 Tegel-Teuros, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and a byzantine web of conspiracies and secret alliances must be navigated any time legislation is voted upon. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Alt-Tegel's national animal is the Babykatze, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alt-Tegel is ranked 180,830th in the world and 7,996th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -3.16 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
