The Atlas Archipelago

Population180 million

CurrencyAtlas Credit

The Holy Empire of The Atlas Archipelago is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 180 million Atlans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Public Transport, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The thriving Atlan economy, worth 17.4 trillion Atlas Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 96,893 Atlas Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 782,867 per year while the poor average 2,699, a ratio of 290 to 1.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Leader's eyes only', and bris parties are all the rage. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Atlas Archipelago's national animal is the Stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Atlas Archipelago is ranked 829th in the world and 1st in Northern Utopia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 290 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
