The Section of Amber Class is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Eleanor Avanelle with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.135 billion Amberians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elesville. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Amberian economy, worth 593 trillion Schmeckleses a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,455 Schmeckleses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amber Class's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Amber Class is ranked 15,031st in the world and 698th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 143,455.13 Standard Monetary Units.
