The Empire of Atain is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.227 billion Atainians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eagleton. The average income tax rate is 31.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Atainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,698 trillion Reams a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 272,769 Reams, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, radio stations offer prizes to callers who can guess this month's most endangered species, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown. Atain's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Atain is ranked 5,424th in the world and 160th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 172.49 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
