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 compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 14.565 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 72.1%.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 61.3 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. Average income is 4,208 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, 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, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. 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 181,796th in the world and 94th in Portugal for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
