OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Confederacy of Elosson is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Elo Cism with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.054 billion Elossonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elossonsson. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Elosson's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the tiger's blood.

Elosson is ranked 2nd in Outpost Uber Alles and 111,642nd in the world for Best Weather, with -826 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
