The Marxist Queendom of AtlasBarfed is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jessica with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.76 billion Atlas Barfs are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antirand. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient AtlasBarfian economy, worth 484 trillion Schmeckles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,509 Schmeckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, most pop videos prominently feature the AtlasBarfian flag, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments. Crime is totally unknown. AtlasBarfed's national animal is the Albino Pygmy Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Satanism.

AtlasBarfed is ranked 3,567th in the world and 26th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 95.75 on the Human Development Index.
