The Queen's State of EM is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.825 billion EMians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Public Transport also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong EMian economy, worth 694 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 43,912 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 293,187 per year while the poor average 2,490, a ratio of 117 to 1.

The Governor has just been declared ruler of EM in an international press conference, EM has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, none has been named as EM's national religion, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. EM's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

EM is ranked 700th in the world and 183rd in Two Letter for Most Politically Free, scoring 100 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
