The Imperial Kingdom of Mystrian Altea is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Archon Syrian Martel with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.213 billion Mystrian Alteans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altea. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mystrian Altean economy, worth a remarkable 2,996 trillion Gold Currents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 129,095 Gold Currents, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,128,950 per year while the poor average 2,247, a ratio of 502 to 1.

The Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore, immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites, the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Mystrian Altea's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Serionism.

Mystrian Altea is ranked 41,707th in the world and 8th in Mystria for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,296.48 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
