The Republic of Almatum is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 360 million Almatumians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Himeriya. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.2%.

The thriving Almatumian economy, worth 30.4 trillion Rupiahs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 84,375 Rupiahs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 285,087 per year while the poor average 18,470, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

A recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, politicians can be seen taking candy from babies, the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, and forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Almatum's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Almatum is ranked 102,844th in the world and 15th in south east asia for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,224.66 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
