The Republic of Amabilis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Maybelle with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, triple-decker prams, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.84 billion Maybellites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maybellegrad. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Amabilisian economy, worth 237 trillion lebiams a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,159 lebiams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 28,887th in the world and 935th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.12 Bank.
