Atlantis is a nation state, located inside The Pond.
Atlantis is one of three states that occupy the region, and is historically the most prosperous. this is due to the large amount of raw materals in the area.
The current council of The Republic are:
- Jacob for Politics
- Benjamin for Economics
- Jason for Infrastructure
The song 'Holiday' by Green Day was made the National Anthem of Atlantis in 2003. The Empire made the decision and the Council stuck with it.
Clothing is similar to that of the early to late 2005's. Atlantis has had a lasting relationship with the U.S. yet president B. Obama refuses to open an internatinal trade with Atlantis. The Committee of International Trade is extending an agreement that allows all Illinois citizens to give money to the Atlantian Government. Free Religion has been allowed although most atthiests are shunned by the church. The only reason this has any influence is because the High Priest, Patron Saint, and the Lead Philosipher Jacob Balog holds a prominent seat on the Council of Atlantis.
In ancient times philosophy was a major part in Atlantian life. The oldest philosopher is Jacob Balog who became a philisophical lerner in 2002. Wrinting over fifteen ancient philisophical books Jacob is considered one of the Fathers of Atlantian Philosiphy. He trained Matthew the Weak and Matthew the Masterbiful before becoming a consular himself. Matthew the Weak was a failure while Matthew the Masterbaiful was a small success.
History of Atlantis
Pre-2001 The early history of the area (pre-2001AD) is mostly unknown, there were no signs or history of a civilization before the estabslishment of early Atlantis.
May 2001-September 2006 The golden age, (quoted by famous Atlantian Scholars) was a time of peace, abundance, and joy. during this period, currency was invented, borders were established, and anarchy was abandoned.
The Dark Ages
September 2006-June 2007 After over five years in peace, a new state was created in The Pond. called Preporia. about a week afterwards Drunk Prep forces started a year long campagin of destruction and vandalism. All of atlantian territory was occupied and buildings, bridges, and stockpiles were destroyed.
June 2007-August 2007
Soon after the occupation of atlantis, a liberation front was established. (picture right.) This force, useing guerilla tatics like traps and scare devices, successfully drove out the invaders from most of the occupied territory.
August 2007-September 2007 After the liberation, a new leader, Benjamin the first, was assigned. and shortly after, the "A Novus Ordo" was written.
The Atlantian Republic
September 2007-Now Soon after Imperial Atlantis was created, "The decree of Atlantis" was written. and Atlantis became a Republic that consisted of three council members. one for politics, one for economics and one for infrastructure.

Atlantis has the largest, and only economy in The Pond. The economy consists of a currency called the "Eno", and the GDP total is roughly $53.60, and $2.55 Per Capita.
Atlantis, due to no tradeing parters, is a closed economy. This makes it very susceptible to a market crash. The Consular of Political Views Jacob Balog has estimated that by June of 09' Eno will have a dramatic ressesion leading to the first Atlantian Depression. He has as such proposed that anyone who wishes for Atlantis to remain intact donate a sum of $5.00 to the Atlantian government.
