The Plutocracy of Atle Fan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by First Citizen with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.736 billion Atle Fanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loony Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Atle Fanian economy, worth 753 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 275,358 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 850,223 per year while the poor average 68,801, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBAF Governor goes house hunting, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime is totally unknown. Atle Fan's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Atle Fan is ranked 11,074th in the world and 701st in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8,037.61 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
