The Principality of Altmar is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Prince Friedrich IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.747 billion Altmers are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reichardtsdorf. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Altmer economy, worth 249 trillion Oricalc Ducats a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,781 Oricalc Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Grand Prince Friedrich IV often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altmar's national animal is the Crimson Hellhound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Cult of The Grand Sun.

Altmar is ranked 140,239th in the world and 6,051st in Lazarus for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 27.64 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
