The Demokratik Kuunsrach of Athara Magarat is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jrm Hangma with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 5.045 billion Athara Magaratis are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Libang. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Athara Magarati economy, worth 628 trillion Kham rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,590 Kham rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Athara Magarat's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Athara Magarat is ranked 6,045th in the world and 28th in The Western Isles for Most Cultured, scoring 140 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
