The People's Republic of Elbenonit is a very large, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 162 million Elbenonitians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Elbenonitian economy, worth 1.17 trillion francs 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 7,204 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, school uniforms are compulsory, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elbenonit's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elbenonit is ranked 126,799th in the world and 4,661st in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 55 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
