The Federation of Nation M is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Lynxx Dekon with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.983 billion Emen are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zeina V. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Emen economy, worth a remarkable 2,130 trillion Kredits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 213,392 Kredits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 732,099 per year while the poor average 45,651, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, the might of the entire Emen Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders, and newly synthesized elements' half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Nation M's national animal is the Handerflot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Theism.

Nation M is ranked 1,955th in the world and 3rd in CISB for Fattest Citizens, with 42.34 Obesity Rate.
