The Oh My God They Were Fendas of Emodea is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Peter Kazinsky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.153 billion Emodeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Palambar. The average income tax rate is 31.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Emodean economy, worth 149 trillion qiples 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Gambling, 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 69,265 qiples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Male tourists tend to be fearful of Emodea's deadly femme fatales, t-shirts displaying a photo of Chancellor Peter Kazinsky performing the Full-Monty are selling out, the most common doctor's prescription is "get out of my consulting room", and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emodea's national animal is the buffalo, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Ren'ahr.

Emodea is ranked 82,466th in the world and 3,966th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 46.31 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
