LeaderMr Thorin


The Republic of Altmeros is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Mr Thorin with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 832 million Altmerans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altmeria. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Altmeran economy, worth 55.6 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,871 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Altmeros, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altmeros's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Altmeros is ranked 157,259th in the world and 8,434th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.59 Obesity Rate.
