The Free State of Eli is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eli Hutton with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 36.811 billion Elians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eli City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Elian economy, worth a remarkable 7,972 trillion New Merits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an amazing 216,573 New Merits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,076,233 per year while the poor average 24,647, a ratio of 43.7 to 1.

Camera crews have accompanied conscripted dancers to film 'Marching On Ice', genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Eli's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Eli is God.

Eli is ranked 107,194th in the world and 4,210th in the West Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 48.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
