The Republic of AtlaeVIII is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Calvin the I with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.037 billion AtlaeVIIIians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostia. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong AtlaeVIIIian economy, worth 129 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 63,670 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, kids are told they can be whoever they want to be when they grow up, gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AtlaeVIII's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atlaeism.

AtlaeVIII is ranked 111,351st in the world and 2nd in Dacac for Highest Crime Rates, with 3.06 Crimes Per Hour.
