The Republic of Amabilis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maybelle with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.066 billion Maybellites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maybellegrad. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Amabilisian economy, worth 241 trillion lebiams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 116,676 lebiams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mob vote is a crucial electoral demographic, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, small towns have started burning historical buildings in hopes of attracting tourists, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amabilis's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Nashrelig.

Amabilis is ranked 118,094th in the world and 4,497th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 57.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
