The Empire of Ateala is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Titus Carlisle with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 2.973 billion Atealans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Diza. The average income tax rate is 31.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atealan economy, worth 646 trillion Soliduses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 217,578 Soliduses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime is totally unknown. Ateala's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Ateala is ranked 142,648th in the world and 7,138th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
