OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Andre Maia with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.148 billion 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.

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 59%. 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.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. 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 45th in Portugal and 70,405th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 55 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
