The Nordic Fenno-Fascist Empire of Atsuria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Lord-President Marcus Sarasti-Varis with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.653 billion Fascist Atsurians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand-City Kalevala. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Atsurian economy, worth a remarkable 1,646 trillion Gold Standard Imperial Fennomarks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,360 Gold Standard Imperial Fennomarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Atsurian Space Agency, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, on-duty Air Atsuria flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atsuria's national animal is the White Lynx Viri Septentrionalis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fascist-Nationalist Protestantism.

Atsuria is ranked 54,697th in the world and 12th in Fifth Empire for Most Stationary, with 231.22792145848 Days.
