The Grand Socialist Jamahiriya of Ambaskow is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Muammar Abu Kazer Bin Haidar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and national health service. The cynical, devout population of 1.06 billion Ambaskis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ambaskowian economy, worth 83.4 trillion Ambaski dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 78,671 Ambaski dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The constant playing of Merry Birthday on Ambaskowian radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ambaskow's national animal is the Dromedary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Ambaskow is ranked 144,549th in the world and 390th in Europeia for Highest Economic Output, with 83.4 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
