The Ambis

Population2.173 billion

LeaderSanta Claus


The Pink Holy of The Ambis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Santa Claus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 2.173 billion Ambisians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggsdassil. The average income tax rate is 89.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ambisian economy, worth 304 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,994 Brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, and much of The Ambis's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. 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 304,407th in the world and 461st in Thaecia for Rudest Citizens, with 5.87 insults per minute.
