The Ancient Occult Hivemind of Emville is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tekeli-chan with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful population of 12.275 billion Emvilleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shuggon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Emvillean economy, worth a remarkable 2,675 trillion Ideyas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 217,999 Ideyas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emville's national animal is the Shoggoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ammit.

Emville is ranked 167,647th in the world and 34th in North Ammitica for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -29.55 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
