OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Holy Commonwealth of Atrus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Patrician Nathaniel Mowbry with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.199 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 small government is mainly concerned with 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.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Atrus's many privately-owned prisons, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. 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 19th in Catholic and 24,197th in the world for Best Weather, with 27 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
