The Colony of New Tropical Isles is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 4.957 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 New Shadowville. 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.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the internet has been placed under government control, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Tropical Isles'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.

New Tropical Isles is ranked 22nd in SideWalk Zone and 111,580th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -26 on the Hayek Index.
