The Nomadic Peoples of AtlaeXXXX is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Calvin the I with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.373 billion AtlaeXXXXians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dragon's Gate. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient AtlaeXXXXian economy, worth 72.7 trillion platinums 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 Tourism, Gambling, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 52,975 platinums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, Calvin the I's former secretary was last sighted on her new yacht, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. AtlaeXXXX's national animal is the vulture, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

AtlaeXXXX is ranked 41,433rd in the world and 33rd in ATOMIC for Highest Poor Incomes, with 44,307.33 Standard Monetary Units.
