The Island of Ambry is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Michael Whitethorne with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, frequent executions, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 36.334 billion Ambryians 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 is dominated by the Department of Environment, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Healthcare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ambry City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ambryian economy, worth a remarkable 2,256 trillion Ambry Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,105 Ambry Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

The letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, and translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ambry's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ambry is ranked 159,175th in the world and 2nd in Bermuda Triangle for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -46.97 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
