The Inter-Galactic Republic of Elycadia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.438 billion Elycadians 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 enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elycadia. The average income tax rate is 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Elycadian economy, worth 846 trillion Elycadian Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,465 Elycadian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pregnant women make easy targets, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and the examiners who examine examiners are being examined by examiners. 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 108,297th in the world and 3,595th in Lazarus for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -3.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
