The Constitutional Republic of Altimontes is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Consul with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.275 billion Altimontesians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Argentea. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Altimontesian economy, worth 91.7 trillion Seterces a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,954 Seterces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Altimontes's national animal is the Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Altimontes is ranked 34,213th in the world and 1,464th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,813.96 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
