The Republic of Elestrum is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 727 million Elestrumites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Elestrumian economy, worth 53.2 trillion lyras 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 significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 73,136 lyras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Janitors and factory workers are often better educated than the bosses they work for, politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elestrum's national animal is the bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elestrum is ranked 146,778th in the world and 7,450th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -12.12 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
