The Empire of The Altan is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its fear of technology, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 390 million Altanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tallinn. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Altanian economy, worth 25.0 trillion Altans a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,216 Altans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Altan's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
