The Republic of AtlaeXXII is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Calvin the I with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.679 billion AtlaeXXIIians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bulgar. The average income tax rate is 38.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong AtlaeXXIIian economy, worth 113 trillion bitcoins 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, fairly diversified black market in Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Gambling. 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 67,429 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AtlaeXXII's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atlaeism.

AtlaeXXII is ranked 156,455th in the world and 4th in Trade Confederacy for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 841.23 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
