The Republic of AtlaeXXXXV is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Calvin the I with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.91 billion AtlaeXXXXVians 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forbidden Spell of Zahras. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.0%.

The powerhouse AtlaeXXXXVian economy, worth 301 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, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 103,655 platinums, with the richest citizens earning 8.7 times as much as the poorest.

Cars are banned, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AtlaeXXXXV's national animal is the vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atlaeism.

AtlaeXXXXV is ranked 101,964th in the world and 237th in Frozen Circle for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,663.22 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
