The Republic of AtlaeXVII is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Calvin the I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.498 billion AtlaeXVIIians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.8%.

The all-consuming AtlaeXVIIian economy, worth 371 trillion francs 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 an impressive 106,142 francs, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, AtlaeXVIIian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AtlaeXVII's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atlaeism.

AtlaeXVII is ranked 105,101st in the world and 6th in The land of land for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,564.66 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
