The Grossly Incandescent Kingdom of Central Amygdala is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Solomon Haighr with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.798 billion Central Amygdalans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astora. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Central Amygdalan economy, worth 350 trillion Souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,396 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and the Central Amygdalan Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Amygdala's national animal is the Crystal lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Central Amygdala is ranked 209,004th in the world and 7,516th in Balder for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
