The Corporate Confederacy of Alteran Republics is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Keith Ryansan with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.821 billion 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Lantea. The average income tax rate is 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Alteran economy, worth 623 trillion Alteran Credit Ͼs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,131 Alteran Credit Ͼs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

People make a career out of medical voyeurism, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and diaper sales are up. 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, and its national religion is Haeuva.

Alteran Republics is ranked 8,427th in the world and 29th in The Western Isles for Healthiest Citizens, with 14.23 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
