The Holy Imperial Invictus of Ellsonian Dominion is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Ellsonian I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.154 billion Ellsonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divinitus Monstrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellsonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,813 trillion Sonians a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 375,517 Sonians, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,333,919 per year while the poor average 76,183, a ratio of 17.5 to 1.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, politicians look weirdly alike, and a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellsonian Dominion's national animal is the Dread Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ellsonian Dominion is ranked 14,222nd in the world and 747th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 86.83 on the Human Development Index.
