Amn is a fictional country in the role-playing game of Dungeons & Dragons, modeled on medieval and Renaissance Spain. It is the land of focus in the titular game Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn.

Amn is a tremendously wealthy nation, holding colonies in far away Maztica and controlling important trade routes to Calimshan and Baldur's Gate. It attracts adventurers from many lands, even from outside Faerûn. Amn's capital is Athkatla, which was founded in 100 DR, which is 0 DR in Amnreckoning (little used except in official documents). Major towns include the walled trade hub Crimmor (pop. 35,491), the main military city of Eshpurta (pop 105,000), the a gem mining town of Keczulla (pop 47,733), and Purskul (pop 27,210), a granary city. The city of Murann (pop 43,773) has fallen into the hands of two ogre mages and their forces, capturing many of the treasure ships in the harbor.
