Atlantis is an MT nation that is the third richest country in the world, behind only China and the United States. It is closer to the UK, USA, Italy and Spain (in that order, though Italy and Spain is probably tied) culturally than it is Greece. It is also a naval power.

And no, Atlantis is not underwater: It has a land area around the size of France.

Pros: Classical liberalism, democracy, the West, free education, strong military
Cons: Authoritarianism, fascism, communism, Russia, Islamism

Is religion legal? Yes.
Does your nation have a state religion? What is it? Yes; Madrinetan catholicism.
Does the government give funding to any religion? The state gives money to local government, which can choose to allocate it to religious organisations as it sees fit. A small portion of the state budget is spent on maintaining the historic buildings and offices of all religions, although the large majority of these buildings are of the state church.
Is the state religion enforced? No.
Is blasphemy of the state religion a crime? No, but it is a civil offence; the Church may bring civil proceedings against a blasphemous publication or speech if it falls within certain criteria. Gross blasphemy, specifically against the Church and its institutions, is tantamount to sedition - and is a serious criminal offence.
Is blasphemy of other religions a crime? No.
Does your nation have a "religious police"? Not an official one, but the civilian police has an Ecclesiastical Office, which occasionally performs arrests for gross blasphemy.

Does religion have a large influence on politics? Not as such; religion is largely the domain of the state (and thus unelected) government, while local (and elected) government doesn't really interact with it. The Church has an unofficial influence on the King, being as the monarchy is a deeply religious institution, and as such much of Madrinet's law is based on Christian teaching.
Are there any religious political parties? There are no political parties. Individuals run for office on their own.
Is religion a requirement for government positions? Counsellors of State, Crown Councillors, and senior Civil Service positions require communion with the Madrinetan church; lower-level positions (such as elected Borough Councillors) do not. All Royal appointments, such as to the judiciary, also require appointees to swear an oath, involving religious language specific to the state church.
Can public officials express their religious beliefs? They can, but it would be unwise

Is religion taught in schools? Yes - "worship of a broadly Christian character" is required, but specific liturgy is not. Academic classes on religion are part of Further Education, and involve historical and academic discussion of world religions (often emphasising their inferiority to the state church).
Are religious classes mandatory? For certain universities and courses, but this is not state-mandated.
Is religion a requirement for becoming a teacher? No.
Can teachers express their religious beliefs? They may only publicly discuss their involvement with the Madrinetan church; discussion of other religions is limited to the academic.
