The Endorse Libertanny of Amabilis is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 684 million Maybellites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maybellegrad. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Amabilisian economy, worth 69.1 trillion lebiams a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,051 lebiams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's youth voluntarily goes to bed early out of sheer tiredness from their working days, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, and mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amabilis's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Amabilis is ranked 30,827th in the world and 910th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 73.59 on the Human Development Index.
