The Nordic Fenno-Fascist Empire of Atsuria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord-President Marcus Sarasti-Varis with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.636 billion Fascist Atsurians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,360 Gold Standard Imperial Fennomarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atsuria's national animal is the White Lynx Viri Septentrionalis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fascist-Nationalist Protestantism.

Atsuria is ranked 1,821st in the world and 1st in Fifth Empire for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 80.62 Bank.
