The Colony of Atlantistan is a colossal, 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 5.178 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 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.

Motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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 24th in SideWalk Zone and 107,694th in the world for Best Weather, with -186 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
