The Empire of Ater Nox is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Nox with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 6.387 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, 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.

The government is seen as openly hostile to all religion, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. 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 178th in 10000 Islands and 7,579th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 40 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
