Atlae-70

CurrencyGold Karuble
AnimalZombie Osprey

The Dominion of Atlae-70 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.675 billion Atlae-70ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 37.8%.

The strong Atlae-70ian economy, worth 108 trillion Gold Karubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,585 Gold Karubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atlae-70's national animal is the Zombie Osprey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Atlae-70 is ranked 67,909th in the world and 2nd in Terra Nova for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,287.75 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
