The Federation of Old Atlantica is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alpacapatrol with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 9.666 billion Atlanticans 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.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpacaville. The average income tax rate is 60.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantican economy, worth a remarkable 3,661 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, Book Publishing, Gambling, 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 an amazing 378,791 Rainsticks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. 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 6,801st in the world and 101st in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 5,509.47 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
