The Queen's State of Attawapiskat is a colossal, devout nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.116 billion Attawapiskatians 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 deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the betale.

Attawapiskat is ranked 361st in the Mars and 65,387th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
