The Confederacy of Alteran Republics is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 690 million Alterans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Lantea. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.2%.

The powerhouse Alteran economy, worth 63.9 trillion Alteran Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 92,671 Alteran Credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

With increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Nova Lantea make great practice for foreign snipers, and celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alteran Republics's national animal is the Alteran Alpine Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alteran Republics is ranked 155,174th in the world and 274th in The Western Isles for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 29.05 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
