The Dictatorship of Elphole is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 195 million Elpholans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Spirituality, although Defense, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 9.7%.

The Elpholan economy, worth 9.13 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 46,802 Rude-Elphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, the strong are acquitted and the weak are trampled in trial by a reindeer, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. 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 172,423rd in the world and 102nd in The World Rearranged for Most Developed, scoring 51.76 on the Human Development Index.
