The OWL T H O U G H T R E S S of Altino is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and daily referendums. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.172 billion Altinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Princess Dinosaur City. The average income tax rate is 7.9%.

The powerhouse Altinian economy, worth 708 trillion mikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,739 mikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, and only Leader's friends count in the eyes of the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Altino's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Altino is ranked 37,276th in the world and 54th in Karma for Most Developed, scoring 62.45 on the Human Development Index.
