Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Andre Maia with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.201 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 74.2%.

The large but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 106 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 8,713 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores. 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 106th in Portugal and 134,109th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -4 Net Tourists per hour.
