The Queen's State of Elliston is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.399 billion Ellistonians 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."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Commerce, although Law & Order and Education are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.
It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, abortions are routinely performed in Elliston's hospitals, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is none, and its currency is the betale.
