The Presidential Inauguration of Altair VI is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Anton Salazar with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.736 billion Altairians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpha Aquilae VI. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Altairian economy, worth 41.2 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 23,746 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, the police insist that racism does not exist, Altair VI is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, and the Intelligence services are renowned for their godless ways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altair VI's national animal is the Palkeo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Altair VI is ranked 196,454th in the world and 165th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Rudest Citizens, with 20.17 Insults Per Minute.
