The Just Let It Burn of Emazia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Leader after stubbing his toe with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 1.167 billion Emazians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 39.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Emazian economy, worth 99.0 trillion Emazian Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,817 Emazian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Emazians, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, Emazians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emazia's national animal is the iron-cast eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Emazia is ranked 159,025th in the world and 241st in Thaecia for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 132.03 Tourists Per Hour.
