The Garthful Garthing Garthers of Elegarth is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by SantaGarth with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.715 billion Draconians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 North Pole. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Draconic economy, worth a remarkable 5,508 trillion Elves a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 253,664 Elves, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, SantaGarth can be seen doing doughnuts in a new Rambogini, the ongoing space elevator construction project has elevated the national debt to all new levels, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Elegarth's national animal is the Reindeer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bahamuth Faith.

Elegarth is ranked 32nd in the world and 2nd in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 39,189.51 Bank.
