The Republic of Almatum is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, avowedly heterosexual populace, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 340 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 41.9%.

The thriving Almatumian economy, worth 27.6 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 81,164 Rupiahs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 261,470 per year while the poor average 19,068, a ratio of 13.7 to 1.

People can get away with murder these days, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and the dead fish in the national rivers aren't decomposing because even bacteria can't survive the levels of toxicity. 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 18,059th in the world and 2nd in south east asia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,315.1 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
