The Imperial State of Northern Ateria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Tragan II with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.501 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, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Outpost. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.1%.

The frighteningly efficient North Aterian economy, worth a remarkable 4,253 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 315,070 golds, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Several inches are being added to first class seating, the might of the entire North Aterian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, and retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits. 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 160,033rd in the world and 47th in Changuu for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 281.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
