The Progressive Collective of Amselheim is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Karl Heraclitus with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, democratic population of 12.039 billion Amselheimi hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ouzelheim. The average income tax rate is 73.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Amselheimian economy, worth a remarkable 1,291 trillion Amsels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 107,288 Amsels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign musicians that Karl Heraclitus dislikes are turned away at the border, the diplomatic corps stinks, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amselheim's national animal is the Turdus Merula, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Amselheim is ranked 5,026th in the world and 113th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 58.65 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
