The Star Empire of Amakul is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Praetor Kyr'am with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.416 billion Amakulians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelldraxe. The average income tax rate is 91.7%.

The powerhouse Amakulian economy, worth a remarkable 1,601 trillion ECS 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 a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 153,735 ECS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, a vast monorail network carries people all over the country, parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amakul's national animal is the Vexargre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Slaaneshi.

Amakul is ranked 12,925th in the world and 376th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,885.71 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
