The Holy Imperial Invictus of Ellsonian Dominion is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Empress Kelly Kimonious Ellsonian I with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.71 billion Ellsonians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divinitus Monstrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellsonian economy, worth a remarkable 2,319 trillion Sonians a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 300,856 Sonians, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, it is often said that only Empress Kelly Kimonious Ellsonian I could bring down Dàguó, and flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ellsonian Dominion's national animal is the Dread Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Imperial Truth.

Ellsonian Dominion is ranked 169,470th in the world and 6,297th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 16.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
