The Queen's State of Elliston is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 36.023 billion Ellistonians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Law & Order, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellistonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,610 trillion Betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 183,520 Betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 537,701 per year while the poor average 49,405, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

The Governor's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, and 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail. 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 deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Elliston is ranked 16,862nd in the world and 4th in Old Spirit for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,795.85 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
