The Royal Empire of The Royal Empire of the Lemons is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Finn Lemon with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.995 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lemon City. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lemon economy, worth a remarkable 1,128 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 225,865 Lehms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in The Royal Empire of the Lemons, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, and children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work. 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 15,766th in the world and 1st in Lemarnia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,541.52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
