The Imperial Tsardom of Atrito is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tsar Corsac with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.059 billion Atritans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Atritia. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atritan economy, worth 449 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 146,926 Imperial Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The digital money revolution has cashed out, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, and the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atrito's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Atrito is ranked 224,510th in the world and 9,143rd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.25 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
