The Holy Necromantic Empire of The Emerald Legion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The wizard with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, enslaved workforce, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.089 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 92.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Emerald Legionian economy, worth a remarkable 8,348 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 346,551 Bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, and a typical peasant's life cycle leads from birth to the gallows. 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 6,331st in the world and 14th in Yggdrasil for Most Avoided, scoring 177.3 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
