The Principality of The Divine Elephant is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 902 million Elephas Maximi are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Elephone economy, worth 56.7 trillion Guilders a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,805 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through The Divine Elephant, teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, and anyone claiming to be a messiah is promptly put to death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Divine Elephant's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Divine Elephant is ranked 235,201st in the world and 1,015th in 10000 Islands for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -8 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
