The Kingdom of Ellcrys is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Charlotte Grey with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 6.293 billion Ellcrysians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shannara. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ellcrysian economy, worth 740 trillion Roses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,642 Roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Shannara" t-shirts, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellcrys's national animal is the Pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ellcrys is ranked 139,379th in the world and 3,239th in the West Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 557.93 milliStalins.
