The Totally Rad Time Traveler of Altino is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.925 billion Altinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Public Transport, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Administration aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Princess Dinosaur City. The average income tax rate is 8.7%.

The powerhouse Altinian economy, worth 923 trillion mikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,466 mikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, only Leader's friends count in the eyes of the government, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Altino's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altino is ranked 32,511th in the world and 35th in Karma for Most Politically Free, scoring 78.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
