The Federation of Old Atlantica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alpacapatrol with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, digital currency, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, cheerful population of 17.026 billion Atlanticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpacaville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantican economy, worth an astonishing 10,087 trillion Rainsticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 592,451 Rainsticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in, and all you have to do is pray to get into Old Atlantica. Crime is totally unknown. Old Atlantica's national animal is the Alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lokorism.

Old Atlantica is ranked 270,455th in the world and 895th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
