The Colony of New Tropical Isles 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, cynical population of 5.689 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.

Religious education is a new government priority, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, and murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed. 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 23rd in SideWalk Zone and 25,642nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 116 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
