The United Kingdom of Athars is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and smutty television. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 50 million Atharians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 9.5%.

The Atharsian economy, worth 2.60 trillion guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,955 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, teenagers can't decide if they're more embarrassed by their parents or the country's leader, the government is lending a hand to private industry, and internet trolls are considered valiant supporters of the right to free speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Athars's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Athars is ranked 130,943rd in the world and 3,910th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 2.60 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
