The Democratic Republic of Enou is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Will Johnson with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.815 billion Enouans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rosrce. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Enouan economy, worth 466 trillion books a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 165,574 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and Enouans visiting rural Southern Emu Village can get their driving records clean for a small fee. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Johnsonism.

Enou is ranked 10,477th in the world and 259th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 165,574.16 Standard Monetary Units.
