Las Alturas

Population186 million

CurrencyLas Alturas real

The Republic of Las Alturas is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 186 million Las Alturans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Las Alturasian economy, worth 7.00 trillion Las Alturas reais a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,628 Las Alturas reais, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Las Alturans, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Las Alturas's national animal is the Quetzal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Las Alturas is ranked 161,562nd in the world and 7,095th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.94 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
