The Most Serene Jarldom of United Provinces of Atlantica is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Allsherjargođi Matteus Gunnlaugsson with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory vegetarianism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 23.875 billion Atlanticans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stórkostlegurborg. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantican economy, worth a remarkable 6,456 trillion Krónas 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 270,441 Krónas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The World Most Serene Jarldom Games have been won again by United Provinces of Atlantica as no other country cares enough to compete, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, and visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage. Crime is totally unknown. United Provinces of Atlantica's national animal is the Brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Norse paganism.

United Provinces of Atlantica is ranked 283,282nd in the world and 4th in Aurelia for Most Devout, with 1.79 prayers per hour.
