The Athene Acropolis of Athenalion is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Athena with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.419 billion Athenii hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Parthenos. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Athenii economy, worth a remarkable 2,629 trillion ideas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 230,303 ideas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home, viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and parents dread their examinations more than their children. Crime is totally unknown. Athenalion's national animal is the athene noctua, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is scientific theory.

Athenalion is ranked 901st in the world and 22nd in Balder for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,096.86 tourists per hour.
