The Holy Commonwealth of Atrus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Patrician Nathaniel Mowbry with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.347 billion, 12 million of whom are zombies, Atrusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gilead. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology industries.

The explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Atrus, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, the government is funneling billions into Cape Atrus following the shuttle crash, and administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Atrus's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Pound.

Atrus is ranked 33rd in Catholic and 103,196th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Atrus is currently attempting to exterminate its infected with military force.
