The Empire of Alateutica is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Authoritator Octavius IV with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 919 million Alateuticans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Schlossadler. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alateutican economy, worth 126 trillion Almarcks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 138,038 Almarcks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 400,350 per year while the poor average 37,695, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed, sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alateutica's national animal is the Shrike, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Alateutica is ranked 655th in the world and 457th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 186 Valid Endorsements.
