The Holy Necromantic Empire of The Emerald Legion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The wizard with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, strictly enforced bedtime, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.34 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 88.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Emerald Legionian economy, worth a remarkable 5,544 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 319,723 Bezants, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,010,527 per year while the poor average 77,235, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, and government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately. 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 150,371st in the world and 148th in Yggdrasil for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 37.7 Workforce Participation Rate.
