Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Republic of Elycadia is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.045 billion Elycadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galactic Pinnacle. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elycadian economy, worth 617 trillion Elycadian Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 122,496 Elycadian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elycadia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elycadia is ranked 167,760th in the world and 5,085th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -82 on the Rand Index.
