The Fascist Theocracy of Altius is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Edward III with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.182 billion Altians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ribeirão Preto. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Altian economy, worth a remarkable 4,839 trillion Cruzeiroes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 397,305 Cruzeiroes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,479,455 per year while the poor average 27,145, a ratio of 91.3 to 1.

Only the brainiest citizens become academics, the endangered saltwater humpback Narwhal is only seen in captivity programs, art criticism in Altius is scathingly destructive, and Edward III often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altius's national animal is the Narwhal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Altius is ranked 169,873rd in the world and 32nd in League of Christian Nations for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.36 Crimes Per Hour.
