The Colony of Key Atlantis is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed population of 4.608 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 Madrid. 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.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, and the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Key Atlantis'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.

Key Atlantis is ranked 2nd in Tropical Isles and 5,744th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 465.5 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
