The ᴇᴠɪʟ ᴀɴᴅ ᴍᴇɴᴀᴄɪɴɢ sᴛᴀʀᴇs of Altino is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.596 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 15.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Altinian economy, worth 981 trillion mikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,628 mikas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 143,499th in the world and 138th in Karma for Fattest Citizens, with 9.69 Obesity Rate.
