The Regional Recruiter of The Atmoran Diplomat is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Empress Katherine II with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 11.33 billion Helisteans 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Helistean economy, worth a remarkable 2,720 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 240,108 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, grumpy old house owners demand that pedestrians get off their footpaths, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, and Great Atmoran Wolf sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Atmoran Diplomat's national animal is the Great Atmoran Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Atmoran Diplomat is ranked 352nd in the world and 1st in Heliste for Most Developed, scoring 99.11 on the Human Development Index.
