The Urban Planet of Altaira Prime is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Archon Alexander Gray with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.502 billion Altairans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Northpoint. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Altairan economy, worth 761 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,382 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

According to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altaira Prime's national animal is the Silver Pheonix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Atheism.

Altaira Prime is ranked 15,783rd in the world and 759th in Balder for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,833.82 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
