Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Elliston is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, humorless population of 29.1 billion Ellistonians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellistonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,194 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 178,521 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 671,499 per year while the poor average 33,115, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

The Ellistonian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, discarded pennies litter the streets, and the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elliston's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Elliston is ranked 7,846th in the world and 2nd in Ancient Lands for Smartest Citizens, with 85.16 Quips Per Hour.
