The Kingdom of Upper Ellisse is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Glorious and Noteworthy Radical Cow with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 3.006 billion Ellisseans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gratuitous Cheesewheels. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ellissean economy, worth 399 trillion radical ideas-styled currencies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,817 radical ideas-styled currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, and the government is under the thumb of countless special interests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Ellisse's national animal is the pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Cult of Timbuktu.

Upper Ellisse is ranked 30,006th in the world and 900th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5.78 Bank.
