The Republic of Attawapiskat is a massive, devout nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws. Its compassionate, cynical population of 4.033 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 60%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Automobile Manufacturing.

Elections have been outlawed, punitive tariffs protect local industry, the right to free speech is being drastically curtailed, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Attawapiskat's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.

Attawapiskat is ranked 864th in The Americas and 90,473rd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -1 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
