The Fédération of Atzum is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Horus II with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 3.647 billion Atzumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arden. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Atzumian economy, worth 441 trillion Ares a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,021 Ares, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Military training in Atzum emphasizes the tactical advantages of stabbing backs, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atzum's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mounismus.

Atzum is ranked 95,826th in the world and 46th in APSIA for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 282.72 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
