Northern Ateria

Population13.181 billion

CapitalThe Outpost
LeaderEmperor Tragan II


The Imperial State of Northern Ateria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Tragan II with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.181 billion North Aterians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Outpost. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.2%.

The frighteningly efficient North Aterian economy, worth a remarkable 4,116 trillion golds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 312,313 golds, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are now allowed to discuss whether Emperor Tragan II is the greatest ruler ever or simply the greatest ruler of this generation, overhead luggage compartments on planes sometimes conceal dimunitive intelligence officers, the people's love for Emperor Tragan II is little more than self-preservation, and soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Northern Ateria's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Northern Ateria is ranked 24,067th in the world and 1st in Changuu for Healthiest Citizens, with 9.3 bananas ingested per day.
