OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Maia with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.119 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.

The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, and the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries. 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 10,259th in the world for Best Weather, with 103 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
