Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Maia with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.022 billion Elshians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.4%.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 51.9 trillion bezants a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 4,317 bezants, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The people of Elsh are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, and police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elsh's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Elsh is ranked 102nd in Portugal and 116,843rd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -209 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
