The Kingdom of Elgar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Gustavus Friedrich von Elgar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.67 billion Elgarians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High-Elgar-Sto-Helitt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Automobile Manufacturing.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Elgarian Royal Confederate Gold Mark battlesuits, stranded astronauts hitch rides on foreign spacecraft to get home, and the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (Elgar has found 1 easter egg). Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Elgar's national animal is the Elgarian Ant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Elgarian Royal Confederate Gold Mark.

Elgar is ranked 212th in Osiris and 6,424th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
