The Protectorate of Altrius Station is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 103 million Alistians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.5%.

The sizeable but sluggish Altrius Stationian economy, worth 2.54 trillion Energy Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 24,676 Energy Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, and overcrowded buses are the new normal for suburban commuters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altrius Station's national animal is the Cow Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Altrius Station is ranked 213,557th in the world and 50th in Entropy for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.05 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
