The Royal Empire of The Royal Empire of the Lemons is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Finn Lemon with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.745 billion Lemons are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lemon City. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Lemon economy, worth a remarkable 1,316 trillion Lehms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 229,192 Lehms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', Lemon novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about King Finn Lemon, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and a new "thought police" branch is being developed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Royal Empire of the Lemons's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Royal Empire of the Lemons is ranked 146,603rd in the world and 1st in Lemarnia for Most Pro-Market, scoring -73.33 on the Rand Index.
