The Iktah Palatinate of Noteer is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Palatine Aven Hyrrsa with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.442 billion Iktah 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.6%.

The very strong Iktah economy, worth 848 trillion Du'nahs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,081 Du'nahs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 357,753 per year while the poor average 27,874, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

The government is known to care more about its buildings than its people, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, Dueisa has been named as Noteer's national religion, and robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noteer's national animal is the Kavat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Dueisa.

Noteer is ranked 29,918th in the world and 13th in The Alterran Republic for Lowest Crime Rates, with 74.66 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
