The Republic of United Atlantic Provinces is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Rafael Ponta-Delgado with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 929 million Provincians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Ventura. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Provincian economy, worth 115 trillion devlons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 124,813 devlons, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

A sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, and stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of United Atlantic Provinces. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. United Atlantic Provinces's national animal is the rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

United Atlantic Provinces is ranked 63,310th in the world and 2,515th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 81.11 on the Hayek Index.
