Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Ater Nox is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Nox with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless population of 11.863 billion Aterians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ateria City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aterian economy, worth a remarkable 3,075 trillion Aterian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 259,220 Aterian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Aterian Dollar battlesuits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ater Nox's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Ater Nox is ranked 157,971st in the world and 1,545th in 10000 Islands for Most Primitive, scoring -412.82 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
