The People's Republic of Altnia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.228 billion Altnians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Per aspera. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Altnian economy, worth 325 trillion Sengs 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. 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 146,312 Sengs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altnia's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Assembly of Liberation.

Altnia is ranked 72,249th in the world and 43rd in Lands End for Most Stationary, with 374.85276703852 days.
