The Sopo Sloth Kingdom of Ambrella is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Sopo Sopopopolis with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 27.284 billion Ambrellans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unionville d'Ambrella. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ambrellan economy, worth a remarkable 6,569 trillion soprics a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 240,769 soprics, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,433,048 per year while the poor average 18,526, a ratio of 77.3 to 1.

A video of Sopo Sopopopolis wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, one of the most popular models in Ambrella has a scarred face and one working eye, and aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ambrella's national animal is the Azure Flamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Allerb'ma.

Ambrella is ranked 1,467th in the world and 97th in Europeia for Most Influential, scoring 65,546 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
