The Colony of New Tropical Isles is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed population of 5.293 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.

Military spending is on the increase, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots. 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 Silver Ounce.

New Tropical Isles is ranked 4th in SideWalk Zone and 1,205th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 232 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
