The Christian Theocratic Nation of Empire of Elysium is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Roman Emperor Robert III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 934 million Elysiumites 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople II. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Elysiumite economy, worth 117 trillion Elysium merit cards a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 125,369 Elysium merit cards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 415,894 per year while the poor average 28,206, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

The government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, criminals are thrown to the Rattle snakes to repay their debt to society, political activists are routinely executed, and the police double as repo men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Elysium's national animal is the Rattle snake, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Empire of Elysium is ranked 4,380th in the world and 1st in Force for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,087.72 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
