The Holy Necromantic Empire of The Emerald Legion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The wizard with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.525 billion Legionairieses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 89.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Emerald Legionian economy, worth a remarkable 6,905 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 353,666 Bezants, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,874,822 per year while the poor average 35,307, a ratio of 53.1 to 1.

Citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Emerald Legionian mussels the biggest in Yggdrasil, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, and eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 15,559th in the world and 55th in Yggdrasil for Most Developed, scoring 85.68 on the Human Development Index.
