The Avatar of Thanatos of Altys is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nathan Hermet with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 8.1 billion Altysians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Healthcare, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Altysian economy, worth 478 trillion Drachmas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,051 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, and the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altys's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Altys is ranked 154,105th in the world and 2,180th in The East Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
