The Empire of The Altan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 628 million Altanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tallinn. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Altanian economy, worth 37.9 trillion Altans a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,274 Altans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Gray Wolf Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Altan's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
