The Green of Elysium Station II is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Green with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.493 billion Elysians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlantic City. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Elysian economy, worth 613 trillion pennies 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 Trout Farming, Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. 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 53,365 pennies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Green claims to be the epitome of family values, people make a career out of medical voyeurism, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elysium Station II's national animal is the ducky, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is baha.

Elysium Station II is ranked 203,463rd in the world and 232nd in Lone Wolves United for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -2.62 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
