The Empire of Amy-Glieston is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 32 million Amy-Gliestonians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Amy-Gliestonian economy, worth 770 billion meanss of production 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. 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 24,063 meanss of production, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and Catherine Gratwick's campaign support is considered seminal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amy-Glieston's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Amy-Glieston is ranked 7,665th in the world and 21st in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 93.75 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
