The Ancestral Homelands of Emyn Arnen is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, fear of technology, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 574 million Emyn Arnenians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Healthcare, Education, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minardil. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The all-consuming Emyn Arnenian economy, worth 43.1 trillion castars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 75,123 castars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 478,644 per year while the poor average 4,858, a ratio of 98.5 to 1.

Excessive gerrymandering has earned Emyn Arnen the nickname 'The Democratic Dictatorship', politicians are fired for opening subjective statements with "I believe", vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Emyn Arnenian mussels the biggest in Middle Earth, and a popular Emyn Arnenian saying is 'wishing upon a fallen jet engine'. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Emyn Arnen's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Emyn Arnen is ranked 17,970th in the world and 6th in Middle Earth for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 7,403.6 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
