The Empire of Ater Nox is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Nox with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate, cynical population of 5.788 billion 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 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.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy. 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 109th in 10000 Islands and 18,412th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 1.438 Stalins.
