The Empire of Ater Nox is a huge, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Nox with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 965 million, all of whom are zombies, Aterians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ateria City. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, and the government pours millions of Aterian Dollars into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ater Nox's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Aterian Dollar.

Ater Nox is ranked 74th in 10000 Islands and 6,412th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Ater Nox is currently researching a cure.
