The Imperial Dictatorship of North Emestia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme King Henry Martin with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.772 billion North Emestians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strodon. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North Emestian economy, worth 374 trillion Imperial Credits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 211,611 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One complaint of North Emestia's new periodic table is it's easy to confuse fearlessleaderium with gloriousleaderium, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, interest in globalism never flags, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as North Emestians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Emestia's national animal is the Emestian Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult of Divine Nationalism.

North Emestia is ranked 33,577th in the world and 192nd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,930.77 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
