Alto Mare

Population905 million

CapitalAlto Mare city


The Constitutional Monarchy of Alto Mare is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 905 million Alto Mareanenses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alto Mare city. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Alto Mareano economy, worth 82.6 trillion Escudoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 91,274 Escudoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery, international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alto Mare's national animal is the Sabertooth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alto Mare is ranked 252,819th in the world and 9,228th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
