The Queendom of AtlasBarfed is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Jessica with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 946 million Atlas Barfs 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 enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antirand. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient AtlasBarfian economy, worth 103 trillion Schmeckles 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 109,045 Schmeckles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, every week is blindness awareness week, glamping Atlas Barfs won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and the government has been criticized for giving away AtlasBarfed's territory to anyone who claims it. Crime is totally unknown. AtlasBarfed's national animal is the Albino Pygmy Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

AtlasBarfed is ranked 3,009th in the world and 42nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
