The Democratic Republic of Eligation is a huge, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 688 million Elitizens enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solpollo. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Eligationian economy, worth 28.1 trillion Sunstones a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,825 Sunstones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Sunstones each year, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eligation's national animal is the Chicken, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Eligation is ranked 129,094th in the world and 4,677th in Lazarus for Most Secular, with 15.15 Atheism Rate.
