The United Commonwealth of Atlantarctica is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alston with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.246 billion Atlantarcticans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Atlantarctican economy, worth 122 trillion uraniums a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,921 uraniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, Max Barry is this year's Miss Atlantarctica, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Atlantis to enjoy their national art, and the new biography of President Alston is subtitled "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Hate the Bomb". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Atlantarctica's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Personality.

Atlantarctica is ranked 10,208th in the world and 72nd in NationStates for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.76 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
