The United Socialist States of Amestrona is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 541 million Amestronans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ergátipolis. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Amestronan economy, worth 11.3 trillion Dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 20,858 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is compulsory, the nation's secret service is so secret that nobody knows if it has one, tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward, and the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amestrona's national animal is the Gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Amestrona is ranked 169,921st in the world and 2,788th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
