The Federal Republic of Elvenschoen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Herman Hunt with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.942 billion Elvenschoenians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Merzany. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.0%.

The thriving Elvenschoenian economy, worth 292 trillion Lancanas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 74,142 Lancanas, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Treason is relative, old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, and only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Elvenschoen's national animal is the Rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Elvenschoen is ranked 67,953rd in the world and 183rd in Thaecia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,462.82 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
