OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Confederacy of Elosson is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elo Cism with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.739 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.

There are no minimum wage laws, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks, and Elosson is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 110,418th in the world for Safest, scoring -259.399 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
