The Zaimist Confederation of Emetistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Zaim Muhammad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.948 billion Emets are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emetiyye. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.6%.

The powerhouse Emet economy, worth 262 trillion zafeens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 134,778 zafeens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 483,035 per year while the poor average 26,970, a ratio of 17.9 to 1.

Metal detectors have been banned after a bottle cap caused a riot at the beach, Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer, boats straying just metres away from the shore will raise the ire of the Coast Guard, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emetistan's national animal is the , which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

Emetistan is ranked 39,723rd in the world and 2nd in Dar al Islam for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 17.91 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
