Republic of Amal

Population273 million



The Republic of Republic of Amal is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 273 million Amalians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aljana. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Amalian economy, worth 17.6 trillion Ladits a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,330 Ladits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Snap elections are called over every minor impasse, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Aljana as a backdrop, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of Amal's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Republic of Amal is ranked 137,198th in the world and 7,474th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.4 Obesity Rate.
