The Federation of AtlanticTradeUnion is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Gilgamesh with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.033 billion AtlanticTradeUnionians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Equality 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.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, and highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school. 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 3,583rd in the South Pacific and 108,233rd in the world for Safest, scoring -57.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
