The Colony of Atlantistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.564 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.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, nudity is frowned upon, schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. 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 10,295th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 187 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
