Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Maia with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 15.075 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. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 63.6 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 4,219 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, the endangered saltwater humpback bison is only seen in captivity programs, E-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor. 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 13,490th in the world and 20th in Portugal for Lowest Crime Rates, with 87.2 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
