The Imperial Tsardom of Atrito is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Tsar Corsac with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.458 billion Atritans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Atritia. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Atritan economy, worth 545 trillion Imperial Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,698 Imperial Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and the nation is under martial law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atrito's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
