The Empire of The Altan is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by John Philip with an even hand, and remarkable for its fear of technology, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 792 million Altanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tallinn. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Altanian economy, worth 47.9 trillion Altans a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 60,436 Altans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Altan's national animal is the Gray Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
