The Dividied Communities of The Atomic Schism is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Community Heads with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 4.827 billion Schismians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Schismian economy, worth 500 trillion Ddołs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,696 Ddołs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, handsome young men are forced into uniforms by their dominant elders, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and purported secret military bases are dismissed by The Community Heads to be highly-advanced toilet factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Atomic Schism's national animal is the Void Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Atomic Schism is ranked 39,937th in the world and 55th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Economic Output, with 500 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
