Average income is an impressive 131,497 Elysium merit cards, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 406,648 per year while the poor average 32,783, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

The upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, and governments opposing Empire of Elysium are beset by rebels.
