Republic of Altos and Stratis

Population12.093 billion

LeaderPresident Georgious Akhanteros


The Independent Nation of Republic of Altos and Stratis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Georgious Akhanteros with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.093 billion Altosian and Stratisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardmarie. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Altosian and Stratisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,290 trillion Pecunias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 189,383 Pecunias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, Altosian and Stratisian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and Altosian and Stratisian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Altos and Stratis's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Republic of Altos and Stratis is ranked 224,008th in the world and 8th in Aels for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -381.71 on the Hayek Index.
