The Democratic Republic of Enou is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Will Johnson with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.987 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 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Enouan economy, worth 655 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 164,314 books, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is paving paradises to put up parking lots, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, Jack Russells have proven to be terrible spies, and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". 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 181,587th in the world and 6,385th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.73 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
