Atheni Prime

Population9.612 billion

Leaderthe Stygian Triumvirate


The Stygian Mining Collective of Atheni Prime is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Stygian Triumvirate with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.612 billion Stygians 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Styx. The average income tax rate is 68.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Belter economy, worth a remarkable 1,678 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 174,589 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, begun the Clone Wars have, and the Styx XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Atheni Prime's national animal is the Exo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Atheni Prime is ranked 197,783rd in the world and 11th in The Arm of Orion for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 46.97 Whatever.
