The United Community of The Atomic Schism is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Śeręn IX with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 4.571 billion Schismians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctuary City. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Schismian economy, worth 489 trillion Ddołs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,179 Ddołs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, handsome young men are forced into uniforms by their dominant elders, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and purported secret military bases are dismissed by Emperor Śeręn IX to be highly-advanced toilet factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Atomic Schism's national animal is the Void Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Atomic Schism is ranked 233,451st in the world and 217th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.61 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
