The Federation of AtlanticTradeUnion is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Gilgamesh with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.835 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are on the agenda. 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.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, and prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children. 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 23rd in the South Pacific and 1,001st in the world for Best Weather, with 424 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
