OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Maia with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.428 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova. The average income tax rate is 63%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, the government seizes all major gold finds, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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, and its currency is the bezant.

Elsh is ranked 12th in Portugal and 9,961st in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 189 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
