The High Enchantressdom of Elvectica is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Her Royal Majesty Adecyn Zabinski with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.637 billion Elvecticans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vundrinsol. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elvectican economy, worth 512 trillion Magicules a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,976 Magicules, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, extreme hiring regulations mean a job in Elvectica is often a lifetime appointment, and grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly. Crime is totally unknown. Elvectica's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elvectica is ranked 156,424th in the world and 6,607th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -10.24 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
