The Confederacy of Elythrea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Marshal Jebediah Grey with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.891 billion Elythreans 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrikaara. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Elythrean economy, worth 246 trillion laurels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 130,356 laurels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Elythrea, motorbike jousters live young and die fast, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elythrea's national animal is the hipster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.
