Atlae-2

The Colony of Atlae-2 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, devout population of 3.17 billion Atlae-2ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.1%.

The all-consuming Atlae-2ian economy, worth 261 trillion karubles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,481 karubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The lasting legacy of the current generation is a million years of buried radioactivity, governments opposing Atlae-2 are beset by rebels, retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atlae-2's national animal is the osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Atlae-2 is ranked 31,326th in the world and 1st in Cosmonaut league for Most Developed, scoring 74.59 on the Human Development Index.
