Credit-based; conversion services available for travel to latinum-based economic systems. Major resources are advanced scientific equipment and research opportunities.
Society is based on University Academician system; an individual's societal level depends on his or her scientific contributions. Teaching, Service, and Research are the three fundamental values of Atlantis Omega.
Over 90% of the population is involved in direct scientific research; the other 10% maintains the largely automated food production and waste management systems as well as goods production and foreign relations.
Individuals are addressed by their last names, except among immediate family, and the naming of children follows a strict code.
Academic standards are quite high, and those failing to achieve those standards are often considered mntally subnormal.
The main interplanetary contact Atlantis Omega has is to Starfleet, which a limited number of citizens are allowed to join in the interest of scientific development and cultural diversity.
Atlantis Omegan is a language somewhat similar to so-called programming languages of late 20th Century Earth. It is used mostly in textbooks and technical specification manuals. Though rarely used in normal speech, most of the governmental documents have been translated into Atlantis Omegan, and some particularly pompous Presidents have been known to give speeches in Atlantis Omegan.
