The Heavily-Legged Strongmen of ElJefe is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Snorlax with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 35.944 billion Jefes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snorlaxia. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The ElJefean economy, worth a remarkable 8,279 trillion Dongs a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 230,353 Dongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, and parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ElJefe's national animal is the Dao, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ElJefe is ranked 178,894th in the world and 6,058th in Osiris for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.39 Missed References Per Hour.
