The Incorporated States of Elyssae is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 188 million Elyssaeans 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.8%.
The very strong Elyssaean economy, worth 13.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 69,848 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 213,371 per year while the poor average 17,722, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.
Cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Elyssae City as a backdrop, the government says only criminals harp on about "innocent until proven guilty", and the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elyssae's national animal is the panther, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
