The Colony of Atlantistan is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.83 billion Tropical Islesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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.

Cats are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, and one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses. 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 17th in SideWalk Zone and 3,184th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 41 on the Enoch Index.
