The Federation of Hangates of Athara Magarat is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Jrm Hangma with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, state-planned economy, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, humorless population of 10.565 billion Athara Magaratis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Libang. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Athara Magarati economy, worth a remarkable 1,342 trillion Magarati Rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,042 Magarati Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, the decision to be oppressed is now made democratically, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and Athara Magarat's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Athara Magarat's national animal is the Chuli Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Athara Magarat is ranked 224,093rd in the world and 181st in The Western Isles for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -20.6 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
