The Grand Technate of Athretvari is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Strategos with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.236 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 6,645 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 502,108 AiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, big game hunters travel to Athretvari to try their hand at shark-shooting, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Athretvari's national animal is the Bobcat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Scientific Universalism.

Athretvari is ranked 10,565th in the world and 2nd in New Coalition of Nations for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 5,512.31 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
