The Holy Kingdom of Athejia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Seraphim Alessandra de Caldarini with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, devout population of 11.885 billion Athejians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paragon. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Athejian economy, worth a remarkable 3,139 trillion Standards a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 264,124 Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, and posh kids don't look down on the poor any more. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Athejia's national animal is the Sky Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Athejia is ranked 90,866th in the world and 33rd in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,311.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
