The Confederation of Alteran Republics is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Keith Ryansan with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.57 billion Alterans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greyhelm. The average income tax rate is 77.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alteran economy, worth a remarkable 1,234 trillion Alteran Credit Ͼs a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,042 Alteran Credit Ͼs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Keith Ryansan's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alteran Republics's national animal is the Alteran Alpine Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Earendelism.

Alteran Republics is ranked 186,897th in the world and 101st in The Western Isles for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.79 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
