The Owls with Guns of Altino is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.133 billion Altinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Princess Dinosaur City. The average income tax rate is 7.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Altinoan economy, worth 601 trillion mikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is 98,087 mikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', the Federal Council of Altino has been announced as the new Head of State, chickens roam the streets freely, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Altino's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altino is ranked 23,708th in the world and 4th in Karma for Highest Economic Output, with 601 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
