The Interstellar Empire of Tropical Isles is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jay Myers with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.153 billion Atlanteans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowville. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantean economy, worth a remarkable 9,631 trillion Silver Certificates a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 455,346 Silver Certificates, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling, Jay Myers can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, and nano-cats are the current fad sweeping the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tropical Isles's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Tropical Isles is ranked 3,147th in the world and 134th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 13,578.73 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
