The Empire of Atain is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 5.692 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 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 3.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Atainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,451 trillion Reams a year, 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 254,964 Reams, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 912,146 per year while the poor average 51,162, a ratio of 17.8 to 1.

Many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime is totally unknown. Atain's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Atain is ranked 162,126th in the world and 9,519th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 4.03 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
