OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Colony of Key Atlantis is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.421 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 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.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. 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 12th in Tropical Isles and 4,349th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 116.4 Insults Per Minute (net).
