The Absolute Insanity that is of Atheara is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Eriana Delis with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.395 billion Athearans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astena. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Athearan economy, worth 203 trillion Arthertas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 145,687 Arthertas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Athearan weed picker are way up, Eriana Delis's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, and the government-sponsored autobiography 'An Eriana Delis For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Eriana Delis's supporters. Crime is totally unknown. Atheara's national animal is the Forest Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Atheara is ranked 117,204th in the world and 778th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,345.85 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
