The Shadow Dancers of EmmJay is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by MJ with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 27.51 billion EmmJayians 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, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chapel Hill. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient EmmJayian economy, worth a remarkable 3,392 trillion kvetches a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,336 kvetches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The comic book series 'MJ and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, unsolved crimes are often pinned on veterans with PTSD, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EmmJay's national animal is the curmudgeon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

EmmJay is ranked 35,768th in the world and 9th in Q102 for Largest Governments, scoring 20.76 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
