Great Elsika

Population242 million

CurrencyElsikan Dollar

The Federation of Great Elsika is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 242 million Great Elsikans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Great Elsikan economy, worth 12.9 trillion Elsikan Dollars 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. 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 53,329 Elsikan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Great Elsika's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, and the upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Elsika's national animal is the Wolf.

Great Elsika is ranked 47,374th in the world and 1,632nd in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 6,530.03 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
