The Holy Imperial Invictus of Ellsonian Dominion is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Kelly Kimonious Ellsonian I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, otherworldly petting zoo, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.578 billion Ellsonians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divinitus Monstrum. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellsonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,028 trillion Sonians a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 353,063 Sonians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Ellsonian Dominion's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, the revelation that people were sexist in the past is apparently front page news, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and the government is avowedly secular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellsonian Dominion's national animal is the Dread Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Truth.

Ellsonian Dominion is ranked 30,392nd in the world and 824th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 66.71 on the Human Development Index.
