Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Elerian is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by High Emperor Saren Magnus with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.532 billion Elerianites 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaeloria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Elerianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,464 trillion Gold Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 153,596 Gold Marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 464,259 per year while the poor average 39,566, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and books are so highly regarded in Elerian that libraries are often revered as holy shrines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elerian's national animal is the Scorpian and its national religion is Chaos.

Elerian is ranked 17,551st in the world and 12th in Kylaris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,775.96 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
