The Queen's State of Atafu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 28.488 billion Atafuans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Atafuan economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 40,681 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 276,584 per year while the poor average 2,185, a ratio of 126 to 1.

All tariffs have been abolished, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, Atafu has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of Atafu in an international press conference. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Atafu's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Atafu is ranked 89,310th in the world and 4th in Atafu for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,089.98 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
