The Ambis

Population3.256 billion

LeaderSanta Claus


The Pink Holy of The Ambis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.256 billion Ambisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggsdassil. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ambisian economy, worth 495 trillion Brains a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 152,058 Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many in The Ambis are born in the purple, the government is flooded with compensation requests, the government's new "quiet competence" initiative has supporters and detractors alike reeling in confusion, and Santa Claus can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids. Crime is totally unknown. The Ambis's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Athyism.

The Ambis is ranked 76,040th in the world and 58th in Thaecia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 203,184 Standard Monetary Units.
