The Maritime Republic of Amalfi is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.763 billion Amalfitans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trasimene. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The very strong Amalfitan economy, worth 911 trillion Sesterces a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 66,196 Sesterces, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 314,083 per year while the poor average 8,233, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, a new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news, the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Amalfi's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Amalfi is ranked 128,788th in the world and 5th in Borealias for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 38.75 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
