The Democratic Republic of Enou is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Will Johnson with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, infamous sell-swords, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 4.886 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 medium-sized, 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 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Enouan economy, worth 798 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, fairly diversified 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 163,526 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", E-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Enou as a reminder of their "special relationship", and the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities. 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 223,612th in the world and 7,514th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -440.74 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
