The Capitalist Empire of Adamantius is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Aurum Argentum I with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.797 billion Adamantiusians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Megatropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Adamantiusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,190 trillion Adamantiusian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 248,140 Adamantiusian dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,208,783 per year while the poor average 29,354, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

No one knows how to tie a reef knot, movies depict muscle-bound women kicking down a titanium door to carry hysterical men to safety, the recently liberated free press cautiously uses compliment sandwiches to cushion its criticisms of Emperor Aurum Argentum I, and schoolkids are often mistaken for fast food workers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Adamantius's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Argentum.

Adamantius is ranked 259th in the world and 199th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 299 Valid Endorsements.
