The Free Republic of Athonuna is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Brendonian with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.319 billion Athonunans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samoda. The average income tax rate is 42.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Athonunan economy, worth a remarkable 1,180 trillion Momas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 221,974 Momas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nose plugs are the latest Athonunan fashion accessory, lifeguards are stationed on the streets during rainstorms, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Athonunan pirates, and commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Athonuna's national animal is the banshee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Evangelical Christianity.

Athonuna is ranked 11,118th in the world and 1st in Liberty and Freedom for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 25,123.27 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
