The Kingdom of Elmgard is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 311 million Elmgardians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aroshall. The average income tax rate is 57.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Elmgardian economy, worth 29.9 trillion ElmCrowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 96,296 ElmCrowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, the children of Elmgard are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elmgard's national animal is the Celestial Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Elmgard is ranked 93,466th in the world and 63rd in New Western Empire for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 3.95 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
