The Empire of Amestris-Britannia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kitsune with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 10.12 billion Amestris-Britannians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amestris. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Amestris-Britannian economy, worth 765 trillion Sekkis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,640 Sekkis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', Amestris has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, and a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amestris-Britannia's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freedom of worship.

Amestris-Britannia is ranked 15,616th in the world and 344th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 1,424.87223391452 days.
