The Republic of Altamonte is a very large, genial nation, notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 158 million Altamontanis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Healthcare, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Altamontani economy, worth 2.70 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 17,086 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Altamonte's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, bins outnumber trees in city parks, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altamonte's national animal is the puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Altamonte is ranked 155,591st in the world and 8,152nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 42.95 on the Human Development Index.
