The Free Land of Elysion Pedion is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 276 million Pedia enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oresteia. The average income tax rate is 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pedi economy, worth 16.1 trillion Hugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 58,217 Hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ceremonial zweihänders are used in holy rituals, Elysion Pedion's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and they say that Pedia made a dessert and called it peace. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Elysion Pedion's national animal is the Bonobo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elysion Pedion is ranked 35,711th in the world and 16th in Philosophy 115 for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.98 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
