The Federated Kingdom of Emerstari is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Erik XII Georg with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.528 billion Emerstarians 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 Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Køroenets and Rensulier. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Emerstarian economy, worth 798 trillion Skilles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 122,331 Skilles, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Trade deals are born to the sound of a royal woman's anguished screams, King Erik XII Georg will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, and wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emerstari's national animal is the Emerstarian Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Emerstari is ranked 10,280th in the world and 5th in Arda en Estel for Most Cultured, scoring 108 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
