The Matriarchy of Elizabethin Islands is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Kyra Vollan with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.874 billion Elizabethin Islandsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eirene de gunvor. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elizabethin Islandsian economy, worth 705 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,065 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, tourists call Elizabethin Islandsian beach towns "the fine coastline", and conspiracy theorists allege Eirene de gunvor's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Elizabethin Islands's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elizabethin Islands is ranked 5,289th in the world and 122nd in the West Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 145 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
