The Totally Rad Time Traveler of Altino is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.984 billion Altinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Public Transport, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Princess Dinosaur City. The average income tax rate is 8.7%.

The powerhouse Altinian economy, worth 929 trillion mikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,466 mikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, only Leader's friends count in the eyes of the government, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Altino's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altino is ranked 28,791st in the world and 54th in Karma for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,821.96 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
