“Life free and be happy”
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Altamonte is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 205 million Altamontanis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Healthcare, Education, and Administration are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Altamontani economy, worth 3.50 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 17,086 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Altamonte's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, bins outnumber trees in city parks, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altamonte's national animal is the puma, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
