The People's Republic of Elvero is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Soldaire with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.859 billion Elverians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elverian economy, worth 271 trillion galleons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 145,983 galleons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and Elverians have recently stopped mysteriously setting off metal detectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elvero's national animal is the Golden Retriever, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elvero is ranked 87,623rd in the world and 5,298th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 59.18 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
