The Intrepid Invidious Republic of Empy is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nick with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 11.372 billion Empyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emp City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Empyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,273 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 287,838 Gold Coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, and dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 with all being equally respected.

Empy is ranked 63,181st in the world and 3,280th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,610.11 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
