The Star Empire of Amakul is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetor Kyr'am with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.825 billion Amakulians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelldraxe. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Amakulian economy, worth a remarkable 1,680 trillion ECS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 155,255 ECS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, the cold war against capitalism is growing chillier by the day, and caroling is considered a public disturbance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amakul's national animal is the Vexargre, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Slaaneshi.

Amakul is ranked 124,711th in the world and 3,937th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 48.45 Insults Per Minute.
