The Democratic Republic of Enou is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Will Johnson with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.155 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 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Enouan economy, worth a remarkable 1,195 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 167,149 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, breaking rocks in the hot sun now involves using your head, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and smoking is banned in public areas. 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 167,096th in the world and 6,964th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 18.23 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
