The Ambis

Population5.38 billion

LeaderKing Richard Isarti II


The Illuminated Kingdom of The Ambis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Richard Isarti II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 5.38 billion Ambisians 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 Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elios. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ambisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,016 trillion Sca'ars 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 188,962 Sca'ars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mothers drive their college-graduate children to work, bins outnumber trees in city parks, skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime is totally unknown. The Ambis's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Illuminatism.

The Ambis is ranked 3,056th in the world and 7th in Thaecia for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.89 years.
