The Confederacy of Elosson is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Elo Cism with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.68 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.

Nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments. 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 110,562nd in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -1,920.5 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
