The Local Imperial News of Emastalia is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 633 million Emastalians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elely. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Emastalian economy, worth 67.0 trillion Liastals a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,835 Liastals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emastalia's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Emastalia is ranked 183,931st in the world and 960th in Europeia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.8 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
