The Greater Riche of Elfland is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Elfqueens with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.945 billion Elves are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Umbworldheadstead Féerique. The average income tax rate is 93.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Elvish economy, worth 767 trillion elfmarks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 155,261 elfmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

There's more than one way to skin a diplomat, they say the best compromise leaves everyone feeling a little unarmed, ticket touts are blamed for the downfall of communism, and the nation is relieved that all of the recent madness has finally come to an end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elfland's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elvish paganism.

Elfland is ranked 4,980th in the world and 3rd in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Largest Black Market, with 415 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
