The Unified Tracts of Elejamie is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mark Costello with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.017 billion Elejamians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coventry. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Elejamian economy, worth an astonishing 14,896 trillion Sofancs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 496,262 Sofancs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elejamie's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Industrial music.

Elejamie is ranked 304,724th in the world and 10,550th in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 12.23 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
