The United Socialist States of Emailistan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Chief Executive with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.159 billion Emailis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emailistan City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Emailistanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,447 trillion Units of Currency a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 244,931 Units of Currency, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, bars are packed at all hours, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emailistan's national animal is the Basset Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Decency.

Emailistan is ranked 226,597th in the world and 8,573rd in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -42.25 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
