The Queen's Holy White State of Elliston is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Saint Patrick with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 37.898 billion Ellistonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elliston City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellistonian economy, worth a remarkable 7,063 trillion gold bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,381 gold bars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 806,181 per year while the poor average 27,406, a ratio of 29.4 to 1.

Dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, write-in candidate 'Saint Patrick Sucks' is perennially popular, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and people can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elliston's national animal is the leprechaun unicorn cow and pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Elliston is ranked 9,855th in the world and 2nd in Old Spirit for Safest, scoring 120.03 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
