OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Maia with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.255 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 55%. 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.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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 16th in Portugal and 9,855th in the world for Best Weather, with 107 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
