The Royal Federation of Alterrum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Álvaro IV with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 10.721 billion Alterrans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Idryll. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Alterran economy, worth a remarkable 2,596 trillion mercators a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 242,195 mercators, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 737,611 per year while the poor average 61,720, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, Álvaro IV's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, Álvaro IV is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, and politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence. Crime is totally unknown. Alterrum's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Alterrum is ranked 144,933rd in the world and 150th in Texas for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -9.49 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
