LeaderThe President


The Empire of Atain is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.69 billion Atainians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eagleton. The average income tax rate is 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atainian economy, worth a remarkable 2,831 trillion Reams a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 292,213 Reams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pros are the new cons, Eagleton Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime is totally unknown. Atain's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Atain is ranked 74,202nd in the world and 3,552nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,654.21 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
