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. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.27 billion 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.

The government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, guns are banned, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit. 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 2nd in SideWalk Zone and 5,687th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 7 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
