The Civilization State of Altivia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Walter Régis with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.083 billion Altivians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athem. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Altivian economy, worth a remarkable 6,487 trillion ansds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 430,102 ansds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, legislators must raise their hands if they want to speak, anti-government web sites are springing up, and supervisors in Altivia commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence. Crime is totally unknown. Altivia's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Altivia is ranked 2,259th in the world and 122nd in The North Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 68.21 average smiles per day.
