The Federal Republic of Altivia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Walter Régis with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.795 billion Altivians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athem. The average income tax rate is 62.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Altivian economy, worth 711 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,392 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The latest drugs are only legally available to private patients, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, and pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids. Crime is totally unknown. Altivia's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altivia is ranked 13,450th in the world and 579th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,833.56 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
