The United Socialist States of Emailistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Chief Executive with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.969 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, 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 5,245 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 262,667 Units of Currency, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The old neighbourhood isn't how most Emailis remember it, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 215,015th in the world and 6,683rd in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -57.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
