Tropical Isles

Population21.61 billion

CurrencySilver Certificate

The Interstellar Empire of Tropical Isles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Jay Myers with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 21.61 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 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantean economy, worth an astonishing 10,038 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 464,521 Silver Certificates, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escargots have lost their charm ever since they started to be called 'cooked land snails', inheritance tax has recently been abolished, Cat is one of the most popular forenames in Tropical Isles, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. 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 39,424th in the world and 680th in the West Pacific for Nudest, with 195.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
