|Leader||Emperor Dimitri II Yusupov|
|Animal||Double Headed Eagle|
The Empire of New Elesar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Dimitri II Yusupov with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 10.087 billion Elesarians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandrovsk. The average income tax rate is 81.4%.
The frighteningly efficient New Elesarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,226 trillion Hryvnias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,609 Hryvnias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.
Satellite images show safe electoral constituencies in complete darkness, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Elesar's national animal is the Double Headed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.
