The Imperial Bureaucracy of Elphis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Regent Oskar with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.06 billion Imperial citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valencia. The average income tax rate is 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Elphisian economy, worth 400 trillion Lunars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 130,959 Lunars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elphis's national animal is the Night Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The State.

Elphis is ranked 67,609th in the world and 1,174th in the Rejected Realms for Safest, scoring 89.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
