LeaderWalter Régis


The Civilization State of Altivia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Walter Régis with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.252 billion Altivians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athem. The average income tax rate is 2.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Altivian economy, worth a remarkable 2,111 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 255,935 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, it is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and Walter Régis has been known to make speeches in fishing waders. Crime is totally unknown. Altivia's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altivia is ranked 244,443rd in the world and 9,460th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -803.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
