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 remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, humorless population of 28.927 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, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. 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 5,159 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 178,365 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 670,913 per year while the poor average 33,087, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Elliston's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of Elliston's historical leaders at Mount Rushless, the Ellistonian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. 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 2,449th in the world and 6th in Ancient Lands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 64.36 Whatever.
