The Republic of AMRUB is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 387 million AMRUBians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.2%.

The frighteningly efficient AMRUBian economy, worth 39.8 trillion MMKS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 102,749 MMKS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 317,257 per year while the poor average 25,673, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, glamping AMRUBians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AMRUB's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

AMRUB is ranked 125,009th in the world and 4,811th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -1.41 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
