The Intrepid Invidious Republic of Empy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Nick with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 11.541 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 2.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Empyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,312 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 287,052 Gold Coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Empyian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones. 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 514th in the world and 17th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 15,368.02 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
