The Queen's State of Elliston is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and renowned for its surprisingly youthful workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.007 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."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized 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 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellistonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,732 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 181,972 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 676,332 per year while the poor average 34,402, a ratio of 19.7 to 1.

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 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 1st in Ancient Lands and 1,970th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
