The High-Technate of Athretvari is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 26.212 billion Vari enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Athretvarian economy, worth an astonishing 20,260 trillion Athcoins 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 Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 772,957 Athcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Athretvari's national animal is the pygmy berserker-cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Scientific Universalism.

Athretvari is ranked 292,795th in the world and 13th in New Coalition of Nations for Best Weather, with -1346 meters of sunlight.
