The Allied States of Ambranth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Boris Pushka with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed population of 2.336 billion Ambranthians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kovek. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ambranthian economy, worth 349 trillion Kopeks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,547 Kopeks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ambranth's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Odinism.

Ambranth is ranked 136,214th in the world and 8th in Iveagh for Most Pro-Market, scoring 35 on the Rand Index.
