In this paper, a new two-dimensional nonlinear oscillator with an unusual sequence of rational and irrational parameters is introduced. This oscillator has endless coexisting limit cycles, which make it a megastable dynamical system. By periodically forcing this system, a new system is designed which is capable of exhibiting an infinite number of coexisting asymmetric torus and strange attractors. This system is implemented by an analog circuit, and its Hamiltonian energy is calculated.
