Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Elycadia is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.721 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, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central District of Columbia. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Elycadian economy, worth 574 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 121,705 Elycadian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, and prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows. 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 53,649th in the world and 1,807th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 166,165.2 Standard Monetary Units.
