The Colony of Atlantistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.062 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.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, nudity is frowned upon, untold millions of Platinum Dollars are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 11th in SideWalk Zone and 4,956th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 103.1 Insults Per Minute (net).
