The People's Kingdom of Emville is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Finnia Lunistar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.949 billion Emvilleans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Finville. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and guns are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emville's national animal is the Cthulhu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Lovecraft, and its currency is the Empah.

Emville is ranked 151st in Lazarus and 4,493rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 17 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
