The People's Kingdom of Emville is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Finnettia Shella with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.642 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.

Skateparks can be found in every city, people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. 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 Russian Blue Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Lovecraft, and its currency is the Empah.

Emville is ranked 131st in Lazarus and 3,602nd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 69 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
