The Athailian Solar Empire of Honour Guard is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Badrick Wolvain with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, vat-grown people, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 14.653 billion Athailian's are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Athailian economy, worth a remarkable 2,159 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 147,361 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, government programs are less "written" and more "plagiarised", there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, and Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Honour Guard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Honour Guard's national animal is the Evolosaur, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The church of the void.

Honour Guard is ranked 19,580th in the world and 8th in Hoshizora for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,386.77 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
