The Queendom of Ellamaa is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 254 million Ellamaanimals love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Ellamaanimal economy, worth 9.54 trillion Ellamoneys a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 37,540 Ellamoneys, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government pours millions of Ellamoneys into rehabilitation programs annually, prison visits increase substantially during election years, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, and employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellamaa's national animal is the Ellammas, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ellamaa is ranked 223,707th in the world and 156th in Refugia for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.72 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
