Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Elliston is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 29.281 billion Ellistonians enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellistonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,236 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 178,837 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 673,092 per year while the poor average 33,142, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. 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 37,012th in the world and 38th in Ancient Lands for Largest Governments, scoring 21.28 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
