The Grand Technate of Athretvari is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Strategos with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.569 billion Athretvars have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ars Scientia. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Athretvarian economy, worth a remarkable 7,118 trillion AiCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is a breathtaking 524,593 AiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Athretvari. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Athretvari's national animal is the Bobcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Scientific Universalism.

Athretvari is ranked 855th in the world and 1st in New Coalition of Nations for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 11,347.18 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
