LeaderHer Majesty Queen Mary III


The Queen and Peoples of Amaranthine Asphodel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her Majesty Queen Mary III with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 36.101 billion Amaranthine Asphodelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amaranthine Asphodel City. The average income tax rate is 24.6%.

The powerhouse Amaranthine Asphodelian economy, worth a remarkable 5,542 trillion calomels a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 153,531 calomels, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Amaranthine Asphodelian politicians, everybody's got wood thanks to Her Majesty Queen Mary III, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Amaranthine Asphodel's national animal is the colocynth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Amaranthine Asphodel is ranked 1,903rd in the world and 2nd in Catholic for Most Influential, scoring 53,407.11 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
