The Technocratic Hegemony of Atnaia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hegemon Thomas Wessich with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.054 billion Atnaians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Purth-Graje. The average income tax rate is 35.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atnaian economy, worth a remarkable 2,410 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 299,341 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, the government snoops on private internet connections, children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atnaia's national animal is the Basuu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Balnianism.

Atnaia is ranked 121,283rd in the world and 142nd in The Western Isles for Most Politically Free, scoring 22.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
