The Drakenriders Pact of Emoran is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Tagorau Redwaters with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.932 billion Emoranians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ellesmera. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Emoranian economy, worth 385 trillion Fares a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 97,962 Fares, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, school football matches are usually five-a-side, and religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emoran's national animal is the Drake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Draconism.

Emoran is ranked 7,351st in the world and 14th in The Free Nations Region for Most Cultured, scoring 125 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
