The Empire of Atain is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.337 billion Atainians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eagleton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Atainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,298 trillion Reams a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 243,225 Reams, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,154,028 per year while the poor average 30,251, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, and drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars. Crime is almost non-existent. Atain's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Atain is ranked 58,908th in the world and 3,165th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
