The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Andre Maia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.734 billion Elshians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 57%. 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.

Every street in the nation contains at least three law firms, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and government officials are held to the highest standard of morality. 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 56th in Portugal and 55,767th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 0 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
