The Civilization State of Altivia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Walter Régis with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.41 billion Altivians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athem. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Altivian economy, worth a remarkable 2,216 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 263,589 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Black tea is only available on the black market, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Altivia, foreign despots proudly bandstand on Altivian airwaves, and children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse. Crime is totally unknown. Altivia's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altivia is ranked 5,861st in the world and 314th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,301.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
