Altai Almas

Population6.362 billion



The Free Land of Altai Almas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.362 billion Altai Almasians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Spirituality, with Education, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altaysk. The average income tax rate is 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Altai Almasian economy, worth 235 trillion Yerens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 36,963 Yerens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, and voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown. Altai Almas's national animal is the Gigantopithecus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Altai Almas is ranked 151,231st in the world and 14th in The Sasquatch Republic for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring zero on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
