The Queendom of AtlasBarfed is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jessica with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.117 billion Atlas Barfs hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antirand. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient AtlasBarfian economy, worth 127 trillion Schmeckles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,299 Schmeckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", and signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles. Crime is totally unknown. AtlasBarfed's national animal is the Albino Pygmy Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

AtlasBarfed is ranked 169,998th in the world and 135th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Pro-Market, scoring -64.22 on the Rand Index.
