The Confederacy of Elythrea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marshal Jebediah Grey with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.868 billion Elythreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrikaara. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Elythrean economy, worth 242 trillion laurels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 129,560 laurels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, homophobia is off the menu, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elythrea's national animal is the hipster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Elythrea is ranked 13,643rd in the world and 36th in Conch Kingdom for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,353.22 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
