Deus Alti

Population128 million


The Republic of Deus Alti is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 128 million Deus Altians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 23.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Deus Altian economy, worth 5.88 trillion Altis a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,956 Altis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Parents tell their children 'what a lovely mistake you turned out to be', government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime is well under control. Deus Alti's national animal is the Lion.

Deus Alti is ranked 128,793rd in the world and 5,349th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 49.06 on the Human Development Index.
