The State of Ammenkis is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.181 billion Ammenkisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cape Narastra. The average income tax rate is 69.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ammenkisian economy, worth 492 trillion Valens a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,830 Valens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Property subletting is going underground, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, and the government pours millions of Valens into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ammenkis's national animal is the Water Buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ammenkis is ranked 54,898th in the world and 21st in CISB for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,738.24 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
