The Greater Riche of Elfland is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the Elfqueens with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.301 billion Elves are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Umbworldheadstead Féerique. The average income tax rate is 89.6%.

The powerhouse Elvish economy, worth 301 trillion elfmarks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,096 elfmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Companies flee the nation rather than pay their fair share of taxes, loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, Umbworldheadstead Féerique's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, and condos feature wall-mounted cages containing endangered animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elfland's national animal is the elf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elvish paganism.

Elfland is ranked 165,628th in the world and 25th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
