The Republic of Amblexvia is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Alcaeus Economus with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 983 million Amblexvians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amblex City. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Amblexvian economy, worth 17.8 trillion Nomis 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 18,086 Nomis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Amblexvia" at foreigners, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amblexvia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Amblexvia is ranked 172,902nd in the world and 8,137th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 628.97 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
