The Kingdom of Upper Ellisse is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Glorious and Noteworthy Radical Cow with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.263 billion Ellisseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gratuitous Cheesewheels. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Ellissean economy, worth 660 trillion radical ideas-styled currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 155,007 radical ideas-styled currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years, police conduct raids on children having snail races, advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Ellisse's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Cult of Timbuktu.
