Greater Emco Uns

The Dictatorship of Greater Emco Uns is a massive, genial nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.24 billion Greater Emco Unsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Emco Unsian economy, worth 147 trillion pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,860 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Emco Uns's national animal is the octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Greater Emco Uns is ranked 56,515th in the world and 1,274th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 220.34178259228 Days.
