Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Andre Maia with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 14.724 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 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 62.0 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 4,208 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts", Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Nova to enjoy their national art, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. 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 112,112th in the world and 72nd in Portugal for Highest Drug Use, scoring 52.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
