The Principality of Altmar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Prince Friedrich IV with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.072 billion Altmers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reichardtsdorf. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Altmer economy, worth 117 trillion Oricalc Ducats a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,899 Oricalc Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Purported secret military bases are dismissed by Grand Prince Friedrich IV to be highly-advanced toilet factories, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, babysitters are a thing of the past, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altmar's national animal is the Crimson Hellhound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Cult of The Grand Sun.

Altmar is ranked 130,491st in the world and 4,608th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 47.15 on the Human Development Index.
