The Holy Kingdom of Ellbonnia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Gustav VIII with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 891 million Ellbonnians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ptolemaeus. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellbonnian economy, worth 116 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,807 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, Ellbonnians caught jaywalking often have their houses seized by the police, and citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellbonnia's national animal is the Usian bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ellbonnia is ranked 59,811th in the world and 2,506th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 73.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
