The Wonder of Emperor-Over-the-Sea is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Wanderer with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 18.833 billion Emperors-Over-the-Sean enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beyond the Sea. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Emperor-Over-the-Sean economy, worth 555 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 29,481 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Emperor-Over-the-Sea's national animal is the Lion.

Emperor-Over-the-Sea is ranked 162,768th in the world and 4th in Latveria for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 114.6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
