Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maia with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 15.63 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.8%.

The large but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 199 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Cheese Exports. Average income is 12,732 bezants, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

According to the latest national census as many as two-thirds of the respondents possibly consider 'violet' their favorite color, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, bison sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. 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 30,277th in the world and 24th in Portugal for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 48.45 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
