The Holy Empire of Emulini is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Great Emu with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.05 billion Emulinians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dam. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Emulinian economy, worth 569 trillion Grasses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 140,497 Grasses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, all the world's a stage for Emulinian political theatrics, government policies change at the drop of a rabbit, and meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emulini's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dankism.

Emulini is ranked 10,696th in the world and 188th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 89.82 on the Human Development Index.
