The Democratic Republic of New Emphillon is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Edward Folkner with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.699 billion Emphillonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Prague. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient New Emphillonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,875 trillion korunas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,185 korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The blind lead the blind in social welfare, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, a degree in Edward Folkner Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and being Edward Folkner has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Emphillon's national animal is the spy crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

New Emphillon is ranked 1,178th in the world and 51st in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 98.15 on the Human Development Index.
