The Queendom of Amanthaya is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Valerie II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 3.598 billion Amanthayans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Presille-Heles. The average income tax rate is 82.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Amanthayan economy, worth 616 trillion bronzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 171,399 bronzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

It's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, and only persecuted professionals need apply. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amanthaya's national animal is the peacock, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Oracles of Aija.

Amanthaya is ranked 20,788th in the world and 647th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 98 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
