The British Overseas Territory of Artlantic Islands is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Governor General Joe with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.938 billion Britishes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oakland. The average income tax rate is 29.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artlantic Islandsian economy, worth 235 trillion Euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,286 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, there's no such thing as bad publicity, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Artlantic Islands's national animal is the siberian husky, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Artlantic Islands is ranked 7,637th in the world and 28th in United Kingdom for Rudest Citizens, with 121.05 Insults Per Minute.
