The Atlae Isles

Population10.459 billion

LeaderCalvin the I


The Card-Carrying Zombie Army of The Atlae Isles is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Calvin the I with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.459 billion Atlaesians 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlaerskoiy. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlaesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,096 trillion karubles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,489 karubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, Calvin the I can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, angry men scowl at each other across chess boards, and cars are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Atlae Isles's national animal is the osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atlaeism.

The Atlae Isles is ranked 2,621st in the world and 61st in The East Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 11,302.16 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
