The Divine Empire of Ateenia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ena Kalinka with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.413 billion Ateenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athano. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ateenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,702 trillion Ateenian Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 202,336 Ateenian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, both criminals and civilians are DOA, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ateenia's national animal is the Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Suomenusko.
