The Grand Technate of Athretvari is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Strategos with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, daily referendums, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 13.432 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 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Athretvarian economy, worth a remarkable 6,929 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 515,873 AiCoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. 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 166,778th in the world and 55th in New Coalition of Nations for Most Armed, with 0.06 Weapons Per Person.
