The Pink Holy of The Ambis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.527 billion Ambisians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggsdassil. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ambisian economy, worth 393 trillion Brains a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,829 Brains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', the government denies that it has an agency overseeing plausible deniability of black-ops agencies, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and all government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Ambis's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Athyism.

The Ambis is ranked 297,635th in the world and 302nd in Thaecia for Fattest Citizens, with 5.05 Obesity Rate.
