The United Soviet Republic of ElBaron is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hugo Alonso with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, zero percent divorce rate, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 11.663 billion ElBaronians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cittągazze. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient ElBaronian economy, worth a remarkable 1,628 trillion Cublas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,630 Cublas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, Hugo Alonso's new office has a propensity to catch on fire, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ElBaron's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

ElBaron is ranked 16,048th in the world and 34th in Thaecia for Highest Average Incomes, with 139,630.41 Standard Monetary Units.
