The Empire of Atheleian is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 856 million Atheleani are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Atheleānse economy, worth 61.1 trillion Athleros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,324 Athleros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

New homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars, clumsy self-injury is a viable claim in modern compensation culture, teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough, and shirts-versus-skins games are now skins-versus-skins games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atheleian's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Atheleian is ranked 41,290th in the world and 2,096th in Osiris for Highest Poor Incomes, with 48,140.86 Standard Monetary Units.
