The Hail the Moon Queen of Altino is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, strictly enforced bedtime, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.837 billion Altinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Princess Dinosaur City. The average income tax rate is 20.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Altinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,094 trillion mikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,482 mikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, only Leader's friends count in the eyes of the government, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Altino's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altino is ranked 22,014th in the world and 34th in Karma for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 6,570.26 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
