The Commonwealth of Empessaa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its burgeoning sheep population. The quiet, industrious population of 10.444 billion Empessaans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 29.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Empessaan economy, worth 252 trillion kronor a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,172 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empessaa's national animal is the sheep.

Empessaa is ranked 111,796th in the world and 2nd in Alliance pour la domination mondial for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,671.55 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
