The Karl and Rosa Mourners 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, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.801 billion Atlanticans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive 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 3,594 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 260,468 Krónas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Atlanticans, and books are so highly regarded in United Provinces of Atlantica that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. 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 67th in the world and 1st in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Inclusive, scoring 647.17 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
