The Corporate Confederacy of Alteran Republics is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Keith Ryansan with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.297 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 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alteran economy, worth 351 trillion Alteran Credit Ͼs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,084 Alteran Credit Ͼs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. 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 74,817th in the world and 161st in The Western Isles for Safest, scoring 81.78 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
