The Dictatorship of Elmedindicator is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Elmedin hajredini with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.397 billion Elmedindicatorians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elmedindicator. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.9%.

The Elmedindicatorian economy, worth 106 trillion Dardanias a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,031 Dardanias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 218,305 per year while the poor average 21,056, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

The government is attempting to impose a new national language on the public, the nation has always been at war with Moltovea, model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf", and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elmedindicator's national animal is the Missile, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Elmedindicator is ranked 34,401st in the world and 50th in Carcassonne for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,356.39 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
