The Democratic Republic of Enou is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Will Johnson with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.832 billion Enouans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosrce. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Enouan economy, worth a remarkable 1,622 trillion books 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 large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 165,069 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Rosrce for fear of causing a fuss, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Enouan bee, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Enou's national animal is the emu, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Johnsonism.

Enou is ranked 48,778th in the world and 1,226th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 62.03 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
