Population5.879 billion

LeaderCharlotte Grey


The Kingdom of Ellcrys is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Charlotte Grey with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 5.879 billion Ellcrysians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shannara. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellcrysian economy, worth 705 trillion Roses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,999 Roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Shannara" t-shirts, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. 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 22,233rd in the world and 449th in the West Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 119,999.04 Standard Monetary Units.
