The Colony of New Tropical Isles is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jay Myers with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.46 billion Tropical Islesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, and strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins. 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 304th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 420 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
