The United Kingdom of Atramentar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Ragnar Zedwardius Ticondraeus with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ritual sacrifices, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.952 billion Atramentaris 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Threnody. The average income tax rate is 46.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Atramentari economy, worth 713 trillion thrones a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,146 thrones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bris parties are all the rage, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Atramentari Space Agency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atramentar's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Asatria.

Atramentar is ranked 25,419th in the world and 6th in New Septentrion for Most Inclusive, scoring 126.39 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
