The Kingdom of Under Atlantis is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Neptune with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.443 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Under Atlantisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,108 trillion Airs a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,223 Airs, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Diminutive Under Atlantisian generals are feared for their aggressiveness, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", insanely good theatre productions face government censorship, and trust-fund babies line up for places in community college. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 1,289th in the world and 2nd in Atlantic for Fattest Citizens, with 54.4 Obesity Rate.
