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 notable for its anti-smoking policies, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 30.034 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 are ignored. 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 5,396 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 179,677 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 693,821 per year while the poor average 31,957, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, replacement organs are grown in vats, and the Elliston Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. 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 173,777th in the world and 1,568th in Ancient Lands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -11.4 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
