The Franco-Germanic Kingdom of Atenburgh is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Nicholas I with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.856 billion Atenburghians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eden. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Atenburghian economy, worth 762 trillion Franks 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 156,989 Franks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, and builders across Atenburgh are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atenburgh's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Atenburgh is ranked 202,825th in the world and 983rd in Europe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -9.97 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
