The Republic of Amabilis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maybelle with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.285 billion Maybellites are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maybellegrad. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Amabilisian economy, worth 281 trillion lebiams a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 123,006 lebiams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, citizens who refuse to vote are guillotined, politicians spend a lot of time hanging around kids' playgrounds, and the nation's water should not be ingested while operating heavy machinery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amabilis's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Nashrelig.

Amabilis is ranked 230,372nd in the world and 7,517th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 56.11 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
