The Communist Republic of Elizbastan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary Constantine Martin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.613 billion Elizbastanians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nilatsgrad. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Elizbastanian economy, worth 560 trillion Frezas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 amazing 214,641 Frezas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A nickname of "Doctor Death" probably indicates a decorated war hero, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, there's a bright dawn ahead for Elizbastan, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elizbastan's national animal is the Orca, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Elizbastan is ranked 6,250th in the world and 160th in the Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 94.12 Effective Tax Rate.
