The Made in China Tsardom of Email is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Czar Gates of house Microsoft with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.314 billion IT personals are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of WiFia. The average income tax rate is 59.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Emailian economy, worth 538 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 162,343 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Vacationing IT personals expect to be treated as royalty, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, people say that smog must be good for you because of its healthy green colour, and citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Email at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Email's national animal is the Firefox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Worship of Steve Jobs.

Email is ranked 218,534th in the world and 3rd in The New French Empire for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.9 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
