The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Maia with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.459 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 56%. 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.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and the art of conversation has been rediscovered. 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 135th in Portugal and 113,754th in the world for Nudest, with 26 Cheeks per Square Mile.
