The Zhenia of Atlantica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Liu Cheng-Min with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.475 billion Zhenians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chenhai. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Zhenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,541 trillion Eastern Kuans a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 338,045 Eastern Kuans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Atlantica's national animal is the Red Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Daoism.

Atlantica is ranked 111,593rd in the world and 69th in International Northwestern Union for Most Authoritarian, with 0.11 Stalins.
