The Republic of Aataroa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 358 million A'ataroans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wellington. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The A'ataroan economy, worth 21.3 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,397 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare dollars, large sections of Aataroa have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, and unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aataroa's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aataroa is ranked 120,982nd in the world and 148th in Greater Middle East for Most Stationary, with 18.98444618328 Days.
