The Democratic Republic of Greater Altantia is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 145 million Greater Altantians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The thriving Greater Altantian economy, worth 12.0 trillion Ounces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 82,923 Ounces, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 255,062 per year while the poor average 20,834, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, and lending firms are subject to strict government regulations. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Greater Altantia's national animal is the Cougar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Altantia is ranked 67,680th in the world and 696th in Europe for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,479.52 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
