The Kingdom of Amstaad is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 307 million Amstaadians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amstaad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.1%.

The powerhouse Amstaadian economy, worth 23.8 trillion Dilets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 77,558 Dilets, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, and Amstaad has designated Amstaad as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Amstaad's national animal is the Eagle and lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Amstaad is ranked 43,804th in the world and 2,573rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.88 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
