Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Andre Maia with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 14.065 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%.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 58.4 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. Average income is 4,152 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. 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 81st in Portugal and 103,732nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
