The Colony of Atlantistan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.392 billion Tropical Islesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire Square. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Woodchip Exports.

Homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Atlantistan to be bombproof. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atlantistan's national animal is the cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Silver Ounce.

Atlantistan is ranked 4th in SideWalk Zone and 83,688th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 42 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
