The Colony of Atlantistan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.234 billion 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 Law & Order. 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.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, religious education is a new government priority, skateparks can be found in every city, and Atlantistan Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere'. 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 Platinum Dollar.

Atlantistan is ranked 13th in SideWalk Zone and 121,692nd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -47 Whatever.
