If you are in the US, Amazon most probably can get your SSN and other personal details and verify whether you are a real person. However, even if you live in the US, if you have no credit history, no bank accounts, and so on, the verification will come back with low confidence. Following standard risk management processes, Amazon could plausibly reject such applications, as part of their CIP processes: it is better to have a false negative (rejecting a normal account) than having a false positive (e.g., accepting an account that will be involved in money laundering or tax-evasion schemes).

For other countries, the ability of Amazon, to follow CIP/KYC processes that conform to the US regulations, varies. I assume, for example, that the cooperation of US with UK or Australian authorities is much smoother compared to, say, Chinese authorities. So, if you live outside the US, the probability of having your account approved depends on how robust is the ability of Amazon to verify individual identities in your country.
