The Capitalist Empire of Adamantius is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Aurum Argentum I with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.458 billion Adamantiusians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megatropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Adamantiusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Adamantiusian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 248,434 Adamantiusian dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,189,995 per year while the poor average 30,350, a ratio of 39.2 to 1.

The urinary fragrance of seedier establishments is thankfully hidden by the smell of stale smoke, engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, minstrels carrying coconut shells provide sound effects wherever their nobles wander, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Adamantius's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Argentum.

Adamantius is ranked 3,034th in the world and 94th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 151.57 on the Hayek Index.
