The Civilization State of Altivia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Walter Régis with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.632 billion Altivians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athem. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Altivian economy, worth a remarkable 3,813 trillion nsds 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 major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 358,691 nsds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Walter Régis Pics" has made Walter Régis's mom a celebrity, relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime is totally unknown. Altivia's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Altivia is ranked 66,610th in the world and 3,489th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 52.64 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
