The Confederacy of Elythrea is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Marshal Jebediah Grey with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.909 billion Elythreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arrikaara. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Elythrean economy, worth 247 trillion laurels 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 129,878 laurels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation leads Conch Kingdom in per capita stalking, the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, and Marshal Jebediah Grey's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elythrea's national animal is the hipster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Elythrea is ranked 4,772nd in the world and 13th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 17,325.46 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
