The Kingdom of Ellcrys is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Charlotte Grey with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 4.287 billion Ellcrysians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shannara. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellcrysian economy, worth 508 trillion Roses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,507 Roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ellcrysian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and the blind lead the blind in social welfare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellcrys's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ellcrys is ranked 13,439th in the world and 310th in the West Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 97 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
