The Sopo Sloth Kingdom of Ambrella is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sopo Sopopopolis with an even hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 28.689 billion Ambrellans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt, liberal government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Unionville d'Ambrella. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ambrellan economy, worth a remarkable 6,741 trillion soprics a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 235,000 soprics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

A video of Sopo Sopopopolis wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, one of the most popular models in Ambrella has a scarred face and one working eye, and aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ambrella's national animal is the Azure Flamingo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Allerb'ma.

Ambrella is ranked 238,588th in the world and 750th in Europeia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -16.43 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
