The Allied States of Elliotus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lenina Laudamus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.647 billion Elliotusians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elliotopia. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elliotusian economy, worth 522 trillion Elks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,535 Elks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Artists are pillars of society, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Lenina Laudamus's wardrobe, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, and commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elliotus's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elliotus is ranked 160,251st in the world and 8,629th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -172.39 on the Hayek Index.
