The People's Republic of Atis is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 269 million Atisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Atisian economy, worth 8.11 trillion quills 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 30,158 quills, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Atis City to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atis's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Atis is ranked 220,704th in the world and 340th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -9.9 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
