The Hasowl-Pharaoh of Altinsane is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Altino with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.647 billion Altinians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 18.5%.

The Altinsanean economy, worth 227 trillion mikas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 40,330 mikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has become increasingly militant, photographs that show ladies' ankles are considered risqué, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and the acceptance of acupuncture and other alternative therapies has needled the scientific community. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altinsane's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Owltholic.

Altinsane is ranked 50,663rd in the world and 2,920th in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 97.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
