The Republic of Elestrum is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 176 million Elestrumites 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, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 47.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Elestrumian economy, worth 4.77 trillion lyras 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 27,097 lyras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There's a politician called Male Infant Li, kindergarten teachers with ankle-bracelets are closely supervised by their parole officers, people of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', and daring to agree with another politician is grounds for instant dismissal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elestrum's national animal is the bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
