The Empire of Ater Nox is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Nox with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 6.519 billion Aterians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt 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.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Ater Nox Blood Tithe, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Phoenixdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and a National Academy regulates grammar and usage. 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 173rd in 10000 Islands and 26,336th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.909 Stalins.
