The Empire of Elyssae is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Empress Anastasia with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 990 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.5%.

The powerhouse Elyssaean economy, worth 93.3 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,267 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, behind every local dictator is an Elyssaean advisor whispering in their ear, scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, and most towns have their Empress Anastasia High School located on Empress Anastasia Street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elyssae's national animal is the Raven, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Elyssae is ranked 63,422nd in the world and 2,304th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring 54.11 on the Rand Index.
