The Holidayhollic Jolly Empire of Elegarth is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by God Emperor Elegarth with an iron fist, and notable for its feral children, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.105 billion Elegarthians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of EleGard. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Elegarthian economy, worth a remarkable 5,784 trillion Gold Coins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 239,957 Gold Coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,099,531 per year while the poor average 31,835, a ratio of 34.5 to 1.

Minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, tuba players are paid to quietly whisper into their instruments, 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 a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elegarth's national animal is the Black Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Atheism.

Elegarth is ranked 4,817th in the world and 73rd in the West Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 59.29 flags saluted per person per day.
