The Judaic-Christian Autocracy of Elysian Kentarchy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Protostrategos Kristina Hymenaios with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, avowedly heterosexual populace, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.372 billion Romans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo-Constantinople. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Roman economy, worth a remarkable 2,169 trillion Nomismas a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 175,366 Nomismas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 688,766 per year while the poor average 30,342, a ratio of 22.7 to 1.

Trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, and radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elysian Kentarchy's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.

Elysian Kentarchy is ranked 245,335th in the world and 8,345th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -21.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
