The Federation of Old Atlantica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alpacapatrol with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed population of 13.13 billion Atlanticans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alpacaville. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Atlantican economy, worth a remarkable 6,799 trillion Rainsticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 517,862 Rainsticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Atlantican Values' advise against being proud of Old Atlantica, rumor has it that Alpacapatrol has won three lotteries in a row, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains. Crime is totally unknown. Old Atlantica's national animal is the Alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lokorism.

Old Atlantica is ranked 1,465th in the world and 32nd in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 98.05 on the Human Development Index.
