The Urban Planet of Altaira Prime is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archon Alexander Gray with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 3.989 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 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Altairan economy, worth 536 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led 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 134,566 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, Northpoint spends billions upgrading public transport, the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. 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 15,839th in the world and 369th in The Communist Bloc for Most Income Equality, scoring 75.54 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
