Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Maia with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, humorless population of 14.903 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 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 62.2 trillion bezants a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 4,175 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Spies caught in Elsh are never heard from again, major cities are suffering under water rationing, a Portugal Tourist Association survey has rated Elsh #1 for number twos, and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Elshian Embarrassments. 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 3,707th in the world and 5th in Portugal for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 61.07 Whatever.
