The Not Grand Duchy of Lower Alterac is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Not Renai Trescu with an iron fist, and notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.685 billion Lower Altrasians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Not Tsentyr. The average income tax rate is 42.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Lower Alterasi economy, worth 36.8 trillion Not Talcs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 13,692 Not Talcs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, people's charity begins and ends at home, the nation is designated as a welfare recipient under Skandilundian law, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower Alterac's national animal is the Not Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Not Sycarism.

Lower Alterac is ranked 123,389th in the world and 15th in Council of Constructed Languages for Most Patriotic, with 7.81 Flags saluted per person per day.
