The Exquisite Highness of Alta Sil is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by None Other than the Glorious Alta Sil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.238 billion Alta Silians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mouth of Alta Sil. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The powerhouse Alta Silian economy, worth 211 trillion blessings of Alta Sils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 94,697 blessings of Alta Sils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 855,022 per year while the poor average 1,271, a ratio of 672 to 1.

Fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals, there's a big brother in every prison, owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions, and customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Alta Sil's national animal is the Alta Sil's pet moth Lucy, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is The Mandatory Cult of Alta Sil.

Alta Sil is ranked 12,183rd in the world and 14th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 10,184.58 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
