The Dictatorship of Limu Emu and Doug is a huge, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, hatred of cheese, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 328 million Intelligent Emus are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Limu Emu and Dougian economy, worth 16.4 trillion Nuclear Wastes 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 Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. 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 49,935 Nuclear Wastes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Taking hostages is a great way to influence government policy, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, hipster cyclists declare that "metal is dead", and children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Limu Emu and Doug's national animal is the Nuclear Infused Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Limu Emu and Doug is ranked 66,172nd in the world and 51st in Eurth for Healthiest Citizens, with 2.52 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
