The Federal Republic of Emeseses is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 8.489 billion rakyat Emeseses 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oonia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Emeseses economy, worth a remarkable 3,183 trillion Kepengs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 374,956 Kepengs, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

The national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime is totally unknown. Emeseses's national animal is the chicken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is all religions.

Emeseses is ranked 43,157th in the world and 1,538th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,285.68 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
