The Confederacy of Alteran Republics is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Albinus Rector with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.264 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Lantea. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alteran economy, worth 165 trillion Alteran Credit Ͼs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 130,799 Alteran Credit Ͼs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. 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 151,755th in the world and 233rd in The Western Isles for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
