The Commonwealth of The Tropican Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by El Presidente with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.752 billion Tropicans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tropico. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.7%.

The powerhouse Tropican Islandsian economy, worth 225 trillion Atlantis Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 82,086 Atlantis Drachmas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 500,827 per year while the poor average 5,942, a ratio of 84.3 to 1.

The homeless more often beg for mercy than money, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, and when it comes to WMDs The Tropican Islands has declared that the only winning move is not to play. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. The Tropican Islands's national animal is the Llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Tropican Islands is ranked 168,716th in the world and 82nd in Atlantis for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 49.36 Whatever.
