The Atlae Isles

Population10.689 billion

LeaderCalvin the I


The Card-Carrying Zombie Army of The Atlae Isles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Calvin the I with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.689 billion Atlaesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlaerskoiy. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlaesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,180 trillion karubles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 204,010 karubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, faithful allies are always valued, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Calvin the I's questionably sane new coalition partners, and rumor has it that Calvin the I has won three lotteries in a row. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Atlae Isles's national animal is the osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atlaeism.

The Atlae Isles is ranked 8,419th in the world and 280th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.57 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
