The Corporate Confederation of Alteran Republics is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Keith Ryansan with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed population of 6.223 billion Alterans 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, 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 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alteran economy, worth a remarkable 1,019 trillion Alteran Credit Ͼs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,874 Alteran Credit Ͼs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gangs have taken to secret handshakes after tattoos were banned, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, and being Keith Ryansan has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. 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 Earendelism.

Alteran Republics is ranked 6,055th in the world and 37th in The Western Isles for Most Influential, scoring 10,137 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
