The United Ocean Kingdoms of Envisa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Guello Monkey Ears Bealow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.819 billion Envisan Mermaids are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Envisan economy, worth a remarkable 2,369 trillion Envisan Periwinkles a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,447 Envisan Periwinkles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Children are raised bilingual from an early age, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and tourists are duped into trimming hedges for the horsy-set. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Envisa's national animal is the Enlightened Sea Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Just Keep Swimming.

Envisa is ranked 181,281st in the world and 120th in South Pacific for Nudest, with 62 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
