The Confederacy of Elwher is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Fah Lo Suee with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.278 billion Elwherites live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanelorn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Elwherian economy, worth an astonishing 12,305 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 552,382 Gold Dragons, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,806,661 per year while the poor average 60,154, a ratio of 46.7 to 1.

Young people crowd pizza parlors praying to 'The Supreme Pizza, His Immaculate Munchiness', economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, and Elwherian royals love to remind their siblings who was adopted first. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Elwher's national animal is the Phoorn dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Elwher is ranked 168th in the world and 1st in Libertarium for Most Avoided, scoring 1,389 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
