The Free Land of Atto is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.153 billion Attoans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 38.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Attoan economy, worth 98.7 trillion florins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,615 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, Leader has just been declared ruler of Atto in an international press conference, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of cobras and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atto's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Atto is ranked 59,809th in the world and 2,935th in Osiris for Largest Governments, scoring 17.18 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
