The 𝔊𝔯𝔞𝔫𝔡 ℑ𝔪𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔦𝔲𝔪 of Altmoras is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Imperator Daniel Storm with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 13.238 billion Altmorans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Altmora. The average income tax rate is 7.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Altmoran economy, worth a remarkable 3,802 trillion Unified Altmoran Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 287,228 Unified Altmoran Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble. Crime is totally unknown. Altmoras's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Altmoras is ranked 12,281st in the world and 28th in Hell for Most Influential, scoring 3,964 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
