The Colony of Atlantistan is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.872 billion Tropical Islesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 23rd in SideWalk Zone and 105,457th in the world for Best Weather, with -172 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
