The Starskiesiver Civilization of ATLANTIARIV is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Christjen Avasarala with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, vat-grown people, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.446 billion Atlantiarivians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantiaiver. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient ATLANTIARIVian economy, worth an astonishing 16,241 trillion quantiaivers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 987,580 quantiaivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists are pillars of society, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, basket-weaving is the nation's latest fad, and Atlantiaiver spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ATLANTIARIV's national animal is the Atlantian Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

ATLANTIARIV is ranked 2,945th in the world and 1st in Archipel for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,651.76 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
