The OMG write issues of The Atlae Isles is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Calvin the I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.94 billion Easter Eggs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlaerskoiy. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Atlaesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,171 trillion Karubles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,736 Karubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A surprising number of police officers have been arrested for Wizard Monster Zombie Easter Albatross sacrifices, going on a diet invalidates your passport, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Atlae Isles's national animal is the Wizard Monster Zombie Easter Albatross, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atlaeism.

The Atlae Isles is ranked 5,373rd in the world and 136th in The East Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 115.59 Quips Per Hour.
