The Confederacy of Elwher is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Fah Lo Suee with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, flagrant waste-dumping, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.394 billion Elwherites enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tanelorn. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Elwherian economy, worth a remarkable 9,811 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 505,909 Gold Dragons, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Business leaders commend the government for enacting an emissions reduction strategy that reduces no Elwherian emissions at all, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, and criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Elwher's national animal is the Phoorn dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Elwher is ranked 34,604th in the world and 6th in Libertarium for Most Developed, scoring 72.61 on the Human Development Index.
