The Dictatorship of Elphole is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.721 billion Elpholans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 10.6%.

The Elpholan economy, worth 131 trillion Rude-Elphs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 48,383 Rude-Elphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Leader has just been declared ruler of Elphole in an international press conference, a major religion has been named as Elphole's national religion, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Elphole's national animal is the reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elphole is ranked 254,330th in the world and 141st in The World Rearranged for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -4.47 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
