The Urban Planet of Altaira Prime is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Archon Alexander Gray with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 3.704 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 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Altairan economy, worth 490 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,337 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Altairan politicians, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, and parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling. 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 88,810th in the world and 451st in The Communist Bloc for Most Politically Free, scoring 56.76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
