The Democratic Republic of Asia Alt is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 736 million Turkics are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Administration, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Istanbul. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Asia Altian economy, worth 86.0 trillion tls a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 116,861 tls, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 567,895 per year while the poor average 13,888, a ratio of 40.9 to 1.

Internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Asia Alt's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Asia Alt is ranked 106,562nd in the world and 2,380th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 410 billion Standard Monetary Units.
