The Society of Athamasha (Latin: Societas Athamashae; Spanish: La Sociedad de Atamasa; Esperanto: La Socio da Atamaŝa; Asham: Klatamne Athamasha; Dutch: Sociëteit van Atamasa; German: Die Gesellschaft Atamaschas) is a large, well-developed nation with strong socialist tendencies.

On 21 July 674 (Island Calendar), Athamasha's many ethnic groups agreed to form the international state -- called the Community -- of Athamasha. The initial constitutional arrangement simply vested all power in an self-electing oligarchical board of twenty-five called the Consilium Maximum Athamashae, Latin for Supreme Council. With time, however, the CMA switched to a more democratic system, finally adding a parliament-like body by 900. Around 8 May 1064, the Community collapsed into ideological factions which battled each other until 28 Nov 1098, at which time the Society faction was triumphant.
During the Community era, the Socialist Party was the largest, followed by the Free Democrats. Other small parties included the Libertarians, the Patriot's Coalition, the Platonics, and many other small ones besides.
The current Society government is dominated by the Society Coalition, which includes the Peace and Socalism Party, the New Dawn Party, the Communist Party of Athamasha (Marxist-Leninist), and the Unity Party. The opposition, is, as of yet, small and disorganized and consists mainly of the Free Athamasha Party, the New Free Democrats, and the Fascist Union of Athamasha.
The Society has not yet had elections, and so the thousand seats in the Caucus Maximus are entirely occupied by the Society coalition.
The Senate is entirely non-partisan, so it would be pointless to produce a roll for it.
The word Athamasha (Atham-asha, "Jupiter Island") originally referred the main island of Athamasha. The country is now spread out over this island, still the main one, and a few others nearby. Because of strict planning laws, almost the entire population lives in the fourteen extremely dense cities: Athamasha, Urbs Diva, Jeru Nostra, Katloko, the Municipality of the Stars, Klatshkla, Alekema, Athamasha Secunda, Byzantium Novum, Athamasha Tertia, Los Castellos, Nieuw Rotterdam, Templa Astribus, and Porta Avium. More information about these cities can be found the Cities of Athamasha article. The few who do not are either members of the defeated Naturalist faction, criminals, or state-appointed farmers.
Main article: Subdivisions of Athamasha
Athamasha is divided into a number of Districts-General, each of which have as close to one hundred million people inside as is feasible. Each District-General in turn has a hundred Districts inside, each with one million people. It would be infeasible to list all two-thousand-plus Districts, but there are only 23 Districts-General, which are grouped into five consulates.
Asham traditionally has four ethnic groups: The Colonii, who speak Latin and dominate almost all areas of government and economics, the Iroj, an Esperanto-speaking group who are often derisively referred to as dwarves, the Suenyadores, a Spanish-speaking group, the Asham, the natives of Athamasha, and the Jews. In recent years the Gelukkiges, German- and Dutch-speaking peoples, have been arriving in increasing numbers in Athamasha. The Gelukkiges were present in small numbers in the old Ward State of Mevamasha.
