The Commonwealth of Amythyst is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alice Evangeline Remington with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 12.547 billion Amythystians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alisagrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Amythystian economy, worth 917 trillion roubles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 73,116 roubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 241,355 per year while the poor average 16,571, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, and mandatory blunting of cutlery has increased the popularity of soup-based meals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Amythyst's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Crystallian Orthodox Church.

Amythyst is ranked 43,345th in the world and 8th in SW Europe for Most Cultured, scoring 69 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
