The Confederation of Alteran Republics is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Keith Ryansan with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.826 billion Alterans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greyhelm. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alteran economy, worth a remarkable 1,279 trillion Alteran Credit Ͼs a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,442 Alteran Credit Ͼs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, government ministers have eclectic tastes in curtains, shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alteran Republics's national animal is the Alteran Alpine Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Earendelism.

Alteran Republics is ranked 225,172nd in the world and 170th in The Western Isles for Most Primitive, scoring -501.21 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
