The Queendom of Amelie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 12.198 billion Amelieans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ameliean economy, worth 98.7 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,090 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amelie's national animal is the fox.

Amelie is ranked 196,695th in the world and 2nd in Battle Royale with Cheese for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5.48 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
