The Really Green Moon of Emodea is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Peter Kazinsky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.116 billion Emodeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palambar. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Emodean economy, worth 74.5 trillion qiples 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. 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 66,757 qiples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A soldier's body is a temple, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, Peter Kazinsky has just been declared ruler of Emodea in an international press conference, and Spiritism has been named as Emodea's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emodea's national animal is the buffalo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Spiritism.

Emodea is ranked 174,235th in the world and 8,420th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 51.19 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
