The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Andre Maia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.71 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 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.

Muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, every street in the nation contains at least three law firms, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. 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 43rd in Portugal and 55,266th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -20 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
