The United Socialist States of Emailistan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Chief Executive with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 21.838 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. 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 5,976 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 273,687 Units of Currency, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. 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 19,731st in the world and 603rd in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 319,169 Standard Monetary Units.
