The Republic of Altag is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.28 billion Altagians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.3%.

The very strong Altagian economy, worth 588 trillion Clues a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 41,191 Clues, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 138,477 per year while the poor average 9,085, a ratio of 15.2 to 1.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, voting is compulsory, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and the death penalty has been reintroduced. Crime is moderate. Altag's national animal is the shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Altag is ranked 27,105th in the world and 6th in The United Reddit Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
