Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Elsh is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Maia with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 16.491 billion Elshians 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 enormous government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Defense, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Industry aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova. The average income tax rate is 67.8%.

The sizeable but stagnant Elshian economy, worth 72.6 trillion bezants a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture and Cheese Exports. Average income is 4,400 bezants, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, the government is reining in public spending, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and the nation is known abroad for fast food and nothing else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elsh's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Elsh is ranked 133,031st in the world and 78th in Portugal for Highest Drug Use, scoring 41.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
