The Kingdom of Under Atlantis is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Neptune with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.755 billion Drowned Sailors are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 71.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Under Atlantisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,657 trillion Airs a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 169,957 Airs, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

An underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, Neptune's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, all citizens must pass a 'multicultural sensitivity test' to be deemed fit for society, and the nation frequently scolds its subject territories for staying up past bedtime. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Under Atlantis's national animal is the Mermaid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Under Atlantis is ranked 37,733rd in the world and 8th in Atlantic for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,256.06 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
