The Autonomous Nation of Empy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Nick with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-working, cheerful population of 13.769 billion Mpyians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mpy City. The average income tax rate is 9.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Empyian economy, worth a remarkable 4,070 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 295,630 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Empy's mid-life crisis, in a baffling press conference Nick proudly dismantled a broken door, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime is totally unknown. Empy's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is none.

Empy is ranked 45,111th in the world and 1,918th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,917.51 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
