The Corporate Confederacy of Alteran Republics is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Keith Ryansan with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.839 billion Alterans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Lantea. The average income tax rate is 68.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alteran economy, worth 630 trillion Alteran Credit Ͼs a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 164,249 Alteran Credit Ͼs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the smell of tobacco is often smelt around legislative buildings across the nation, and the government snoops on private internet connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alteran Republics's national animal is the Alteran Alpine Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Haeuva.

Alteran Republics is ranked 11,822nd in the world and 52nd in The Western Isles for Longest Average Lifespans, with 83.47 Years.
