The Balder State of Elthicshire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Aln Koresol with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 8.302 billion Elthiards are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Domildát. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Elthic economy, worth 880 trillion elbas 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 106,085 elbas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
International tensions are high as Elthicshire threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, every workday begins with group therapy, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Aln Koresol to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elthicshire's national animal is the mockingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Espalism.
