The Holy Commonwealth of Atrus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Patrician Nathaniel Mowbry with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.423 billion 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 medium-sized government concentrates mainly on Religion & Spirituality, although Education and Law & Order are secondary priorities. 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 9th in Catholic and 11,652nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 2 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
