Upper Alterac

Population3.87 billion

LeaderRenai Trescu


The Grand Duchy of Upper Alterac is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Renai Trescu with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.87 billion Alterasi are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsentyr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Alterasi economy, worth 584 trillion Talcs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 151,158 Talcs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 665,294 per year while the poor average 21,558, a ratio of 30.9 to 1.

Gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, and Renai Trescu's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Upper Alterac's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Sycarism.

Upper Alterac is ranked 4,615th in the world and 1st in Council of Constructed Languages for Most Avoided, scoring 511.11 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
