The Empire of Elthalion is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by His Majesty Emperor Elthalion with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.521 billion Elthalionians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elthalion City. The average income tax rate is 69.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Elthalionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,504 trillion Elins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,160 Elins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, retail staff are trained to take both inside leg measurements and the lives of their enemies, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, and convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elthalion's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elthalion is ranked 16,149th in the world and 841st in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 71.06 quips per hour.
