The Technocratic City State of Atrito is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Corsac I Greycloak with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.81 billion Atritans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sky's Peak. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Atritan economy, worth 213 trillion Technical Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 117,938 Technical Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, mournful opera fans place bouquets of roses at a 3000 capacity parking lot, and every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries. 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 Mountain Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order.

Atrito is ranked 161,466th in the world and 7,012th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -6 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
