The United States of EmCap is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 216 million EmCapians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.2%.

The powerhouse EmCapian economy, worth 21.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 97,705 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 277,362 per year while the poor average 27,491, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, and a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction. Crime is well under control. EmCap's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

EmCap is ranked 37,588th in the world and 3rd in The Region of Nations for Most Developed, scoring 62.8 on the Human Development Index.
