Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Andre Maia with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 12.938 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 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 52.4 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 4,053 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, Max Barry is this year's Miss Elsh, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. 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 87th in Portugal and 113,184th in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
