The Republic of Ambiaris is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.569 billion Ambiarisians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Ambiarisian economy, worth 132 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,691 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Weather reports simply advise Ambiarisians to 'look outside', all alcohol is banned, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ambiaris's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ambiaris is ranked 40,040th in the world and 1,060th in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 29.19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
