LeaderWill Johnson


The Democratic Republic of Enou is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Will Johnson with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.21 billion Enouans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosrce. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Enouan economy, worth 144 trillion books a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,476 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Enouans, posters on 'Enouan Values' advise against being proud of Enou, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, and trust-fund babies line up for places in community college. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Enou's national animal is the emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Enou is ranked 49,346th in the world and 1,888th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,080.5 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
