The Interstellar Empire of Tropical Isles is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jay Myers with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.638 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowville. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantean economy, worth an astonishing 10,058 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 464,846 Silver Certificates, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, if you die during a restaurant meal the government will pick up the bill, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. 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 233rd in the world and 4th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 326,857.34 Standard Monetary Units.
