The Zhenian California of Atlantica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Liu Cheng-Min with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, vat-grown people, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.139 billion Zhenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. 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 4,317 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, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 355,705 Eastern Kuans, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, and birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Atlantica's national animal is the Fenghuang, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zhenian Wuism.

Atlantica is ranked 165,246th in the world and 62nd in International Northwestern Union for Most Pacifist, with 2.88 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
