The Colony of Atlantistan is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.716 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.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. 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 5th in SideWalk Zone and 3,728th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
