The People's Federal Republic of Elhazia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.639 billion Elhazians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The enormous, moralistic, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, with Environment, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.8%.

The powerhouse Elhazian economy, worth 243 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,433 florins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 202,764 per year while the poor average 9,304, a ratio of 21.8 to 1.

Children asking questions about science are referred to relevant sections in religious texts, The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been banned for advocating gluttony, the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, and terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Elhazia's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elhazia is ranked 66,080th in the world and 7th in Aeia for Most Pro-Market, scoring 53.33 on the Rand Index.
