The New Order of Elegia Inc is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mark Osborne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, avowedly heterosexual populace, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.229 billion Elegians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elegia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Elegian economy, worth a remarkable 1,343 trillion Blisses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 185,869 Blisses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,711,583 per year while the poor average 2,049, a ratio of 835 to 1.

Hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, political activists are routinely executed, and Mark Osborne is the self-declared God of all Elegia Inc. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Elegia Inc's national animal is the Theridion grallator, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Elegia Inc is ranked 1,430th in the world and 1st in APSIA for Most Avoided, scoring 1,085.62 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
