The Queen's State of Elliston is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 32.527 billion Ellistonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny 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 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellistonian economy, worth a remarkable 5,838 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 179,511 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 664,414 per year while the poor average 34,160, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

Sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. 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, and its national religion is none.

Elliston is ranked 15,337th in the world and 1st in Elliston for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 19.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
