The Democratic Republic of Atrigea is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Nuri Alço with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-working population of 10.484 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atrigeas . The average income tax rate is 23%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Tourism.
The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atrigea's national animal is the Haymana beygiri, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the triga.
