The Utopia of Elfrard is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Wilbur Wakreka-Chereau with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.593 billion Elfrardians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wafraken. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Elfrardian economy, worth 356 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 137,314 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 410,714 per year while the poor average 35,903, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and Wilbur Wakreka-Chereau is famed for giving great back rubs. Crime is totally unknown. Elfrard's national animal is the Elkri, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elfrard is ranked 188,125th in the world and 396th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 84.94 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
