The Nordic Fenno-Fascist Empire of Atsuria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord-President Marcus Sarasti-Varis with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.67 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 1,652 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 112,664 Gold Standard Imperial Fennomarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, and women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets. 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 173,618th in the world and 24th in Fifth Empire for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -18 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
