The Empire of Amnalos: Amnalos occupies a fertile lowland plain flanked by mountains to the east and ocean to the north and west. Amnalos's wealth and power has traditionally been derived from rich mines in the mountains. While ores remain the major export, oil fields offshore have become an important part of the economy. The army is relatively large. The people of Amnalos are generally tall and slender. It has been said that they are self-righteous and arrogant, but their integrity cannot be denied and it would be more accurate to say that they guard their personal dignity above all else.

 

The Currency: The official currency is the Crown, which enjoys a strong exchange rate against other currencies. One Crown is worth about US$0.93

 

Capital City: Raga Amnalos. Situated at the northern tip of the Empire, this city enjoys proximity to both the mountains and the sea trading lines. It has always been the trading centre of the nation but it was not until five hundred years ago that it became a major legislative site, when the merchant Valantheon family settled there and began to wield their considerable influence to the benefit of the city.

 

Government: The government of Amnalos is divided into three main tiers, two of which are democratically elected. The Lower House is composed of 61 representatives from the different provinces of Amnalos. It proposes and votes on all issues of state excluding military concerns. The Senate or Upper House consists of 17 Senators. In addition to passiong or vetoing resolutions of the Lower House, the Senate decides all of Amnalos's military policy.

 

The upper tier of Government is the Emperor or Empress, who rules by hereditary right and cannot be removed from office save by death, coup or abdication. Unlike other hereditary monarchies, the throne goes to the eldest child regardless of gender. It is the Emperor's right to veto any resolution passed by either the Senate or Lower House and only a vote of 13-4 or better in the Senate can block an Imperial Decree. Past rulers have used and misused this power extensively, but Kano IV has shown admirable restraint.

 

Religion: Amnalos has no official religion. Public worship is not officially sanctioned by the State but neither is it frowned upon. Amnalos has an eclectic mix of religions, with Christianity and Atheism being the biggest two.

 

Economy: Amnalos has a strong economy. Unemployment, especially long term, is fairly low and those who do not or cannot work are looked uopn with mild contempt. Taxation is at a bearably low level and the wealthy are taxed more than the less well off.

 

Major exports are ores, oil and precision machinery. Major imports include pharmaceuticals and cloth.

Hmm. My people have always defended freedom of religion, and are indifferent to pie. But so be it: henceforth all bearers of religious trinkets or pies of any variety shall register with the Amnalite Border Guard before entry to the Empire shall be granted.

 

I like pies.
