The Federal Republic of Emeseses is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by the President with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.882 billion rakyat Emeseses enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oonia. The average income tax rate is 41.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Emeseses economy, worth a remarkable 1,772 trillion Kepengs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 363,090 Kepengs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, the request to "give us our daily bread" can only be fulfilled six days out of seven, and nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Emeseses's national animal is the chicken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is all religions.

Emeseses is ranked 5,544th in the world and 126th in the Rejected Realms for Most Cultured, scoring 142 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
