The Holy Necromantic Empire of The Emerald Legion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The wizard with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.543 billion Legionairieses 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 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. The average income tax rate is 92.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Emerald Legionian economy, worth a remarkable 7,740 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 343,384 Bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, The wizard can finally stop kneading the dough and start rolling in it instead, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. 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 1,438th in the world and 10th in Yggdrasil for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 9,408.52 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
