Do I Use NS Stats/Economy/etc.?: Yes and no. Although most of my IC info is what I say it is (i.e. the population, the exchange rate and military size), there are a few moments where I will use NS stats; for example, tourism being the biggest industry here.
* The EDPC (Elejamie Defence and Protection Corps) are only active in the event of war or humanitarian missions. Due to Elejamie's neutrality, the former is quite rare, although members do have to take a week-long training course every three months to refresh their skills. The Elejamian Armed Response Unit (EARU) is practically a combination of a gendarmarie and SWAT, but they're more a police wing than an official party of the army (although some EARU members have served as part of the EDPC). The Elejamie Coast Guard (ECG) are the only military-like organisation to remain active throughout the year.
