Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Atle Fan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Citizen with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.015 billion Atle Fanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loony Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Atle Fanian economy, worth 188 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 186,009 bitcoins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 763,436 per year while the poor average 29,921, a ratio of 25.5 to 1.
The government has outlawed extremist parties, the nation is proudly the least fertile in The North Pacific, town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Atle Fan's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
