The Colony of Key Atlantis is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.187 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.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, the newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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 57th in Tropical Isles and 104,769th in the world for Best Weather, with -147 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
