The Republic of Americantia is a small, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 29 million Americantians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 24.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Americantian economy, worth 1.93 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 66,480 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's latest batch of politicians include internet comedians, an alleged serial killer, and a highly trained panther, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and urban parents tell their children that the family car went to a farm upstate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Americantia's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Americantia is ranked 48,140th in the world and 27th in Abydos for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,143.29 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
