The Finnish Republic of Amsterwald is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Kai Mykkänen with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.412 billion Finns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Helsinki. The average income tax rate is 70.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Finnish economy, worth a remarkable 3,146 trillion Finnish markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 253,491 Finnish markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, people's charity begins and ends at home, and political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Amsterwald's national animal is the brown bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Amsterwald is ranked 194,474th in the world and 141st in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Food Quality, scoring 7.89 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
