The Colony of Atlantistan is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 949 million, all of whom are zombies, 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.

The armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and shanty towns have formed around the newly rebuilt commercial district. 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 1st in SideWalk Zone and 2,895th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 17 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Atlantistan is currently considering its options.
