The Tasmanian Island of Alter Victoria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Grand Lord Of Tasmania with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 4.66 billion Hippies enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melbourne. The average income tax rate is 28.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Alter Victorian economy, worth 198 trillion Australian Dollars a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,584 Australian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime is totally unknown. Alter Victoria's national animal is the Leadbeater Possum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Knowledge.

Alter Victoria is ranked 76,726th in the world and 18th in Shinka for Highest Economic Output, with 198 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
