The United Republic of Free Atlantis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Atlas with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.517 billion Republic citizens hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republic City. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Republic economy, worth 810 trillion yuan a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,926 yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The rich and poor vomit into separate bags, hardline members of the Red Bloc consider President Atlas a filthy revisionist traitor, a video of President Atlas wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime is totally unknown. Free Atlantis's national animal is the sky bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Avatarism.

Free Atlantis is ranked 167,443rd in the world and 326th in The Communist Bloc for Most Pro-Market, scoring -59.56 on the Rand Index.
