The Sopo Sloth Kingdom of Ambrella is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sopo Sopopopolis with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 25.237 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, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. 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 5,921 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, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 234,630 soprics, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,180,207 per year while the poor average 26,070, a ratio of 45.3 to 1.

Citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, t-shirts displaying a photo of Sopo Sopopopolis performing the Full-Monty are selling out, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high. 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 15,427th in the world and 309th in Europeia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
