The Peoples Socialist Republic of North Amherst is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lucas Weston with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 6.375 billion North Amherstinians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charlotte. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient North Amherstian economy, worth a remarkable 1,231 trillion Gons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 193,227 Gons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

"It was only a joke" is no longer a defense for the felony of discrimination, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Amherst's national animal is the Gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Judaism.

North Amherst is ranked 94,283rd in the world and 97th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,090.63 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
