Welcome Atalvincina

We welcome The Empire of Atalvincina (, as the 237th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.

The Empire of Atalvincina is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate population of 40 million are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Religion & Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53%, and even higher for the wealthy. A very small private sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Retail.
Gambling is outlawed, abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Atalvincina's national animal is the eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the nomisma.
