The First Thalmor Reign of Altmer Dominion is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Ayrenn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, avant-garde cinema, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.05 billion Dominion Citizens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elden Root. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The all-consuming Altmerian economy, worth 551 trillion Golden Drakes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 136,271 Golden Drakes, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Dissidents are commonly labelled as baby-killers, science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters, the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, and protestors are soaking piles of Golden Drakes in blood to make a point about government incomes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altmer Dominion's national animal is the Senche-Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Eight Divines.

Altmer Dominion is ranked 12,473rd in the world and 100th in Forest for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 5,017.28 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
