The Federation of Old Atlantica is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Alpacapatrol with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 19.827 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 12,867 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, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 648,968 Rainsticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's museums are real penny-pinchers, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, pedants defending Alpacapatrol observe that psychopaths and sociopaths aren't exactly the same thing, and the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances. 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 284,239th in the world and 823rd in 10000 Islands for Safest, scoring 3.41 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
