The Kingdom of Elmgard is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 305 million Elmgardians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aroshall. The average income tax rate is 57.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Elmgardian economy, worth 29.3 trillion ElmCrowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 96,178 ElmCrowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and the children of Elmgard are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elmgard's national animal is the Celestial Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elmgard is ranked 206,896th in the world and 143rd in New Western Empire for Fattest Citizens, with 7.44 Obesity Rate.
