The Franco-Germanic Kingdom of Atenburgh is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Nicholas I with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 4.883 billion Atenburghians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eden. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Atenburghian economy, worth 771 trillion Franks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,946 Franks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the people's love for King Nicholas I is little more than self-preservation, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atenburgh's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Atenburgh is ranked 11,831st in the world and 175th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 157,946.76 Standard Monetary Units.
