United Altancian

Population282 million


The Republic of United Altancian is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 282 million United Altancianians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 22.2%.

The strong United Altancianian economy, worth 21.2 trillion Drachmaes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 75,021 Drachmaes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The latest political memes depict Leader as an overly-choreographed robot, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and boom-and-bust cycles are being peddled as economically inevitable. Crime is relatively low. United Altancian's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

United Altancian is ranked 155,770th in the world and 6,247th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
