The Watchfires of Athos 3 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 18.901 billion Athos 3ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 47.9%.

The thriving Athos 3ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,577 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,480 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, Athos 3ian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Athos 3's national animal is the Dolly Varden, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Athos 3 is ranked 54,656th in the world and 1st in Republica Oriental del Uruguay for Highest Poor Incomes, with 38,163.63 Standard Monetary Units.
