The Finnish Republic of Amsterwald is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Kai Mykkänen with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.39 billion Finns 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsinki. The average income tax rate is 71.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Finnish economy, worth a remarkable 3,127 trillion Finnish markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 252,448 Finnish markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, people's charity begins and ends at home, and political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Amsterwald's national animal is the brown bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Amsterwald is ranked 6,658th in the world and 22nd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 11,920.29 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
