The United States of New Atlantico is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 252 million Atlantians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olympus. The average income tax rate is 25.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantian economy, worth 23.9 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 94,873 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The urinary fragrance of seedier establishments is thankfully hidden by the smell of stale smoke, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of New Atlantico's radio stations, New Atlantico has designated Olympus as its capital city, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime is almost non-existent. New Atlantico's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Atlantico is ranked 6,038th in the world and 195th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 19.74 Obesity Rate.
