The Commonwealth of The Atomic Schism is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Kara Rhodes with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.116 billion Schismians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strontiumopolis. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Schismian economy, worth 355 trillion Schismian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,079 Schismian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

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 Chancellor Kara Rhodes to be highly-advanced toilet factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Atomic Schism's national animal is the Giant Cockroach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Sekturalism.

The Atomic Schism is ranked 84,691st in the world and 70th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,983.44 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
