OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Federation of AtlanticTradeUnion is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Gilgamesh with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.224 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of UrbanX. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, people of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. AtlanticTradeUnion's national animal is the Drop Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Pylon.

AtlanticTradeUnion is ranked 4,597th in the South Pacific and 121,706th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -14 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
