The Royal Confederacy of Eluvatar is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Presiding Steward Beregond ArFinn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 25.63 billion Eluvatarans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romenna. The average income tax rate is 10.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Eluvataran economy, worth a remarkable 3,864 trillion Romennan Dukats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 150,788 Romennan Dukats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, the Eluvataran Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eluvatar's national animal is the Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Eru.
