The Kingdom of Elphonsa is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Rawdon Jones with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 780 million Elphonsans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivorn. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Elphonsan economy, worth 80.7 trillion Elphonsan Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 103,516 Elphonsan Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, lovesick people are told 'it's not them, it's you', the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and the latest superhero movie features a caped Elephant with adamantium claws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elphonsa's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Elphonsa is ranked 97,712th in the world and 15th in Talonia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 160,679 Standard Monetary Units.
