The Holy Necromantic Empire of The Emerald Legion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The wizard with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.892 billion Legionairieses are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Emerald City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Emerald Legionian economy, worth a remarkable 5,751 trillion Bezants a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 321,441 Bezants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,006,449 per year while the poor average 78,716, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

There is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Emerald Legionian military, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, and The wizard's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Emerald Legion's national animal is the Mechaneko, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a death cult.

The Emerald Legion is ranked 144,150th in the world and 202nd in Yggdrasil for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 25.14 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
