The Kingdom of Atrito is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Robert with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, humorless population of 5.926 billion Atritans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atritia City. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atritan economy, worth a remarkable 1,025 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,095 Imperial Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atrito's national animal is the Arctic Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atritaic Paganism.

Atrito is ranked 221,418th in the world and 9,645th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -9 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
